Molten Coral Coleus

Description
Not only does this coleus have coral-colored foliage, the leaf shape actually looks like living coral. It's very distinctive, really dressing up a mixed foliage display. Excellent alongside coarser-leafed and monochromatic plants. It grows fast and fills in an area nicely. In frost-free zones it'll be evergreen, and in cooler zones it's often used as an annual, or you can overwinter it indoors. An excellent filler for annual container gardens, especially for downtown gardens as it thrives even with city pollution. More good news, deer tend not to eat this coleus.

When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 9 inches apart. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 5 years.Molten Coral Coleus is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. It is often used as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination, providing a canvas of foliage against which the larger thriller plants stand out. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
