Perhaps you know them as painted nettle or poor man’s croton, depending on where you’re located, but for many of us, we simply know them as coleus plants (Coleus blumei). They have some of the most stunningly colored foliage—in combinations of green, yellow, pink, red, maroon, etc. Coleus also have a wide variety of leaf sizes and overall shapes. This means that no matter what area you are looking to put coleus, you can find one that will be perfect. These plants are great for adding color in the garden (or home), especially in those dark, drab-looking corners.
Caring for coleus is just as easy. They need to be kept moist, especially newly planted coleus. Coleus can be added to beds and borders for interest or grown in containers. They need fertile, well-draining soil and usually perform best in areas with partial shade, though many varieties can also tolerate sun.
