The glowing yellow boss at the heart of each leaf blends to a deep, mottled maroon near the tip. Leaves have scalloped, sun-lit edges. Coleus 'Dipt in Wine' was a star in our containers last summer.
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.
