Product Details

Product Details

Our Coleus Confetti Classic, a customer favorite for years, provides a brilliant tapestry of foliage that you’ll enjoy right up until the first hard frost of fall. One plant of each variety, 6 plants total. Container not included.

  • Coleus 'Black Magic'
  • Coleus 'Garnet Robe'
  • Coleus 'Rattlesnake'
  • Coleus ColorBlaze® Sedona Sunset™
  • Coleus Stained Glassworks™ Big Blonde
  • Coleus 'Bronze Pagoda'

Some plants require more space in container gardens than others. To accommodate the 6 plants in this collection, we recommend a container at least 16″ in diameter and 6″ deep.

The endlessly colorful foliage of Coleus once figured prominently in Victorian bedding schemes andrecently have made a comeback, as gardeners have rediscovered old varieties and breeders have introduced new ones. Coleus varieties make glorious container subjects and though most tolerate full sun, they are more valuable in shade, where summer color is scarce. Perennial in Zone 10.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Confetti review

A viewer from Phelan, Ca. 92329

OMG, I've received this plant twice now and each time I've not been unhappy! It has just grown so big and strong and beautiful. I put it on my back porch where it gets some morning sun and my husband waters the grass so it gets watered daily, plus at night we water it well. The temperature in the summer is quite warm, up to 100 deg sometimes but mostly in the 90's. But it grows fast and beautiful with so many colors and decorates our patio so nicely. Thank you so much for the fantastic mix of flowers. I could never have thought of all the different kinds of flowers you put together. God bless you all.

Beautiful!

Bud from Ma

I bought this collection 2 years ago and I planted them in a large whiskey barrel. At first the little plants looked sparse but in a matter of weeks the barrel was full of color and they kept growing throughout the summer. Absolutely beautiful.

coleus confetti classic annual collection

AJ from Windsor, CT

I have not personally had this particular collection (yet!) but have several other coleus from WFF and can say they do grow beautifully. The only thing keeping me from ordering this particular collection right now is there are no planting schematics! No chart or diagram. My coleus tapestry collection also does not contain such a chart. I am unfortunately not at all artistically inclined and these charts helped me create beautiful arrangements as the gardeners at WFF do. Please can you help and include a schematic or planting design with the collections sold as designed gardens or collections. Without the planting design chart I would not be able to duplicate such lovely planters or gardens and having the equally lovely results as the pictures show is what inspires me to try more of these predesigned gardens or collections.

Beautiful Color

tosh from Orlando, FL

One plant arrived broken. I placed the root in the soil with others but did not come up. And one another Coleus pagoda is barely surviving while others seem to be growing so healthy. The green is overwhelming, but they perhaps need more time to grow. Other than the fact I lost two Coleus Pagoda, the plants were fine.

Latin Name Pronunciation: ko'lee-us 

Traditionally, Coleus have been terrific foliage plants for shade, but many of the new varieties are also quite tolerant of sun. Variations in light intensity can have a dramatic impact on leaf color and plant size. Their diversity of foliage color, leaf shape, and growth habit make Coleus a valuable container and bedding plant, especially in shade where summer color is scarce.

All Coleus prefer evenly moist garden soil. Where the growing season is long, pinch the tips of the stems regularly to encourage branching and compact growth. If you grow Coleus in containers, we recommend that you incorporate a timed-release fertilizer at planting time. We also suggest using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks for plants in containers; in the ground, once a month is enough, with the fertilizer diluted to half-strength. Hardy only to Zone 10, plants cannot withstand frost without damage. In colder climates, plants can be overwintered without difficulty on a sunny windowsill, or take tip cuttings in early fall to start new plants. Coleus root very readily.

It is commonly recommended that the blooms of Coleus be removed as soon as they appear because they detract from the foliage display. Bloom is sparse on the varieties we offer, and the small lavender-blue flowers are neither unattractive nor very showy; it hardly seems worth the trouble to cut them off.
