2023 All America Selections Winner, the first ever seed-grown coleus to win this award. Penn State gave Coral Candy a 4.78 out of 5 in its 2023 flower trials.
Slender, feather-shaped leaves have hot coral pink centers, dark russet accents, and serrated bright green edges. Although similar in size and width to other Premium Sun coleus, what sets Coral Candy apart is a gracefully arching, downward growth habit that creates elegant 10 to 16 in. tall and 12 to 14 in wide mounds.
Premium Sun Coral Candy coleus are easy to grow in borders and containers, and because they bloom very late, plants remain showy for months.
Grow Premium Sun Coral Candy coleus in full sun in climates with high humidity, or grow in afternoon and filtered shade anywhere else.
Growing Premium Sun Coral Candy Coleus Seeds
Plant Coleus Seeds: Sow 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., seedlings emerge in 10-14 days. Transplant seedlings of dwarf coleus into the garden 9 to 12 in. apart. Plant larger coleus varieties 12 to 18 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 the low humidity climates common to the Western United States. Remove coleus flowers as they form to keep foliage visible, healthy and growing. Near the end of the season, allow some of the nectar-rich flowers to form. Blooms will attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Coleus is an excellent container plant and can even be grown in a brightly lit window indoors.
