Plant Showcase - Coleus - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Here is a great example of Coleus. Coleus also is an annual. Coleus makes a great, it is a great option to flowering annuals. So for instance, we use this leafy colored plant in a bed, we use it in a container, we also use it in hanging baskets, they make wonderful hanging baskets. This particular version gets a little bit bushy and tall, but there are versions of it that grow over, like this Lysimachia, and they will spread over a hanging basket, for instance. What I love about this plant is it can take medium light to low light, in some cases take high light. So it’s a pretty versatile plant, it has got a great leaf color, it is a great contrast to things like this chartreuse-looking Lysimachia, and I love this plant in a container.
