Product Details

Product Details

Our Coleus Confetti Classic Annual Collection, 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 'Henna'
  • 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 12″ 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.

This collection is shown in our Cretan Pot Andreas, which is sold separately. Click here to order.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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.

Delivery and service made this impossible

Went out on a limb to order online, sometimes my local nurseries don't have exactly what I am looking for. I found this beautiful collection of coleus at WhiteFlower Farm specifically sold as a collection. I purchased 2. $160 with shipping. Not cheap. They arrived in a box, tightly packed and unfortunately many were in marginal condition. I decided to plant them to see if they would make it with a little time. I had the house sitter water them while I was out of town. Sadly of the 12, only 4 looked viable when I returned. I contacted customer service, probably too late though. They offered a partial refund, and wanted to know which ones didn't make it. Out of 6 different named plants, I couldn't recall. After some pressing on my part and contacting them yet again, they also refunded the shipping fee. So I ended up paying them about $50 for 4 plants. They really need better packaging and faster delivery for the plants to survive, was quite a waste of energy and resources. I used to order Amaryylis from them but won't now. They could have kept a customer, as their "complete customer satisfaction guarantee" offers. Just offer me a credit for the remainder you wouldn't refund or offer to send something in the fall.

We are sorry to learn the majority of the plants in this collection either died or arrived in poor condition. I issued a refund for the remainder of the collection and you will be receiving the refund details via email shortly. I do apologize that the entire collection was not refunded during your initial call.
Sincerely,
Michelle

Ordering again!

I'm ordering these again this year because they were so beautiful on my deck. They grew very large; I had them all in separate pots and I can't imagine them fitting into one pot! Nothing beats coleus for brilliant color, with no need for flowers. They just kept growing and growing until frost. Well worth it!

A Real Disappointment

This collection was planted the day after it arrived in Miracle-Gro potting soil. It arrived dried out and bedraggled, so the fact that two plants died within a week and the others are struggling was no surprise. The plants were shipped when they were far too big for successful transplanting.
Response from White Flower FarmWhite Flower Farm, 3 years ago (05/25/19 02:01PM)

I am sorry to learn the plants in this collection have either died or are struggling. As they are guaranteed I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation. We do recommend acclimating plants for several days after shipping before planting and this information should have been received with the order. I do apologize if it was not received.
Sincerely,
Cathy

Confetti review

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!

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.

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.
