Colorful Coleus
Want more color than most blooming plants can deliver? Include coleus for annual foliage color in your landscape beds and containers. The 'Aurora' series provides a splash of red, orange, coral, pink, burgundy, and green for an eye-catching wave of color in shade to part sun exposures all summer long.
