Premium Dark Chocolate coleus leaves are a rich mahogany brown color.
The easy to grow plants are vigorous, mounding and well branched to 24-30 in. tall and 18-24 in. wide. Premium Sun Dark Chocolate coleus is easy to grow in borders or containers and because they bloom very late, plants remain showy for months.
Premium Sun Dark Chocolate coleus will tolerate full sun (in climates with high humidity), or afternoon and filtered shade everywhere. Full sun brings out subtle splashes of burgundy in the leaves.
Growing Premium Sun Dark Chocolate Coleus Seeds
Plant Premium Sun 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. After all danger of frost transplant into 4 in. containers, or into the garden 12 to 18 in. apart. Direct sowing is not recommended.
Grow Premium Sun Coleus: Part shade to full sun. Rich, moist soil. The Premium Sun series of coleus will tolerate full sun in many areas — plants prefer part shade in the low humidity climates common to the Western United States. Remove 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.
