Black Dragon Coleus
Coleus blumei. Attractive and curious. A riot of rumpled leaves in deep purple maroon oddly quilled around a raised central medallion sometimes flecked with violet or pink. Black Dragon holds colour well. An interesting addition to your landscape or pots. Height 12 inches. Approximately 50 seeds/pkg.
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting. Sow seed on the surface of the soil, do not cover as light is required for germination. Provide a soil temperature of 21-24 degrees C. Transplant after all danger of frost is past, 6-8 inches apart.
Coleus can grow under any light condition, shade to full-sun as long as they get plenty of moisture. Pinch and remove flowers to encourage branching and full growth.
