Coleus ‘Florida Sun Rose’

          Florida Sun Rose Coleus


Horticultural Notes

There are countless varieties of Coleus on the market but I only use a few in my garden.  Florida Sun Rose is a star performer with rosy pink leaves marbled with burgundy and highlighted with green specs.  Although they are perennials, Coleus are short lived.  But you can get several seasons of unmatched color and texture.  The main trick is to pinch out the light blue flower spikes.  This helps to keep the plant in vegetative growth.  Trim lightly and fertilize for lush growth.  Plant in full sun or light shade and give regular water.
