Description

When it’s about annuals, garden designers know that it’s not just about the flowers- foliage matters too. Discussing foliage, coleus is nothing less than a gem. These fleshy, Coleus coerulescens-succulent plants are a member of a popular mint family with woody grey-brown stems bearing fleshy succulent blue-green leaves and finely toothed margins.

 Also known as hens-and-chicks, these succulent plants have a beautiful leaf structure with oppositely arranged leaves, and a square stem.

For all forgetful gardeners, Coleus is the ideal choice. It will never let you down. It blooms short, spiked pale-blue boat-shaped flowers.

Though Coleus is a heat-loving herbaceous plant but is usually treated as an annual. Coleuses reach a maximum height of 7 inches and are low maintenance.
