Black Dragon Coleus

Description
Have you noticed how popular coleus have been getting lately in annual planters? The leaves in intense, vibrant colors are a dramatic and stylish companion to other leafy container annuals. Another reason this variety is the star of annual planters around businesses is that it's highly tolerant of city pollution. It is great for urban gardens. Black dragon is a gorgeous coleus variety, and in a shady spot in hot Southern zones, that brilliant saturated color will stay year-round. In cooler zones it behaves as a shade-loving annual. Solenostemon scutellarioides 'Black Dragon'
