Description

Coleus are grown for their colourful foliage that adds and exotic twist to the garden in summer. Coleus 'Walter Turner' is a relatively restrained variety in muted autumnal tones of mahogany and gold. This leafy, tender perennial is best grown as an annual filling patio pots on the patio, or plugging gaps in beds and borders. Like all Coleus, this RHS AGM variety is easy to grow, flourishing in sun or shade. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 45cm (18”).


1 x 2 litre potted coleus plant (KB9873)

How to Grow
Pot up Coleus plug plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions for transplanting later on. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage branching and form a bushier plant. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise painted nettle plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before transplanting them outdoors into beds, borders and containers. Plant Coleus plants in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in a sunny or semi-shaded position. Solenostemon can also be grown as houseplants, situated on a warm, bright window sill or in a conservatory or heated greenhouse.
More Info
Feed and water Coleus plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Remove any developing flower spikes as they will weaken the plant and cause poor quality foliage. Coleus houseplants should be given full light and a warm position in the winter months. Reduce watering and keep the compost just moist to prevent rotting and fungal diseases developing. Pinch back Solenostemon plants in the spring as growth resumes.
