How to Plant and Grow Coleus

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Coleus Seeds: Sow coleus seed in cell packs or flats, use a sterilized soil-less mix. Press seeds into soil, do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75°F., germination is in 10-14 days. Transplant seedlings of dwarf coleus into the garden 6-9 in. apart. Plant larger coleus varieties 8-12 in. apart.

Grow Coleus: Part sun to light shade. Rich, moist soil. The Premium Sun series of coleus will tolerate full sun in many areas, prefers part shade in low humidity climates of the Western United States. Remove coleus flowers as they form to keep foliage healthy and growing. Near the end of the season, allow some of the nectar-rich flowers to form. Blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Coleus is an excellent container plant and can be grown in a brightly lit window.
