Coleus is a beautiful spring-through-fall annual, a shade-loving plant and a favorite among shade and container gardeners.

Coleus Blumei is a species of flowering plant in the family Lamiaceae, native to southeast Asia through to Australia. 

As a tropical plant, coleus can't bear a chill and will blacken and die once the weather dips much below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Although coleus is typically grown outdoors as an annual, its vibrant leaves provide many months of enjoyment indoors if growing conditions are just right.

If you are going to plant Coleus in spring, place the seeds in a paper envelope. Write the date and type of seeds on the envelope. Never store seeds in plastic, as the seeds may mold.

Store the envelope in a cool, dry, dark location until spring.

  •  Start sowing coleus seed with a flat or container, with a damp potting soil. Lightly sprinkle the coleus seeds over the soil. Mixing the seeds with fine sand before sowing can help you to spread the seeds more evenly with a bit more of a gap between the seeds.
  •  After you have spread the coleus seeds, cover them with a fine layer of potting soil.
  •  Cover the container with plastic and place in a warm spot in bright, indirect light. You should see seedlings in about two weeks.
  •  When you see the coleus seedlings, remove the plastic.
  •  Keep the soil moist as the seedlings grow. You will find it is less damaging to the coleus seedlings to water from below.
  •  Once the seedlings are large enough to be handled (typically when they have two sets of true leaves), they can be transplanted to individual containers.



Coleus Blumei care is important in keeping the plant healthy. 

  •  Water regularly to keep the soil slightly moist – never too dry and never soggy. 
  •  Feed the plant once every week or two during spring and summer, using a water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength. 
  •  Place the pot on a tray with a layer of wet pebbles if the air in your home is dry. (Never let the bottom of the pot stand directly in water.) Pinch the tips of the plant frequently to keep it bushy. 
  •  Remove up to one-third of growth if the plant becomes long and leggy. 
  •  Remove blooms as soon as they appear, as they draw energy from the colorful foliage. If you allow blooming to continue, the plant will go to seed and die. If the plant gets too scraggly, it may be time to start fresh with a new plant.

So far I'm happy with my purchase. Keep the soil moist, don't let it dry. But don't soak it wet either. They will grow.

Deanna Ondricka

They were very beautiful until the winter killed them.

Alysson Bruen

Not all color in the mix, but all seeds grow well. Now I have a garden with Coleus.

Jared Ebert

So far I’ve only gotten green leaves with a pink/red center so I’m not sure about the variety. The germination was good.

Abe Predovic

I bought these last year in spring , but, did not plant till April this year. I am amazed at how easy these were to grow and develop in just 8 weeks.
