Sometimes the best addition to a garden isn't a flower: it's fabulous foliage! With Bonnie Plants® Red and Green Coleus, the unique, colorful foliage is the star of the garden: vibrant leaves sport purple centers, deep rose veining, and bright green scalloped margins that fill the landscape with color all summer long. This low-maintenance, gorgeous plant thrives no matter where you need it, growing beautifully in full sun or full shade. The kaleidoscope-like foliage with its upright, bushy habit stays vibrant in sunny spaces without any fading. Plant masses of Red and Green Coleus in garden beds to complement blooms, or add it to shady spaces to brighten dark corners. Try combining it with flowering annuals or perennials for a spectacular container garden. The foliage makes a great addition to floral bouquets, too. Red and Green Coleus flowers six weeks later than other varieties, so the plants stay neat in garden beds and containers. Pinch off the insignificant flowers to direct the plant's energy into creating big, beautiful leaves. Who says flowers should star in beautiful garden designs when Red and Green Coleus makes such a spectacular show?

Plant Red and Green Coleus in well-drained, evenly moist soil and feed with Miracle-Gro® Plant Food at planting. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Use mulch to help retain moisture in the soil. For best results, add high-quality Bonnie Plants® live plant coleus to your garden instead of growing from seed for an instant addition of color and brightness. Your garden will be off to a great start!

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
