In the world of Coleus, it seems that being over the top is a goal of each new cultivar. 'Peter's Wonder' still manages to stands out from the pack with its very frilly foliage (almost like a cabbage) that is a mix of green, yellow, violet, and pink. It continues the parade of colors with cream veining and magenta-pink splotching, which is repeated as highlights along the leaf edges. This cultivar would look splendid all by itself in a large container planting.
The endlessly varied foliage of Coleus has made a comeback as gardeners rediscover old varieties and breeders introduce new ones. Our selection offers a diversity of foliage color, leaf shape, and growth habit, and they all make glorious container subjects. Though most tolerate full sun, they are more valuable for color in shade. Perennial in Zone 10.
