Coleus Redhead

This is one of my favorite coleus to plant in a mixed container next to the birdbath, but I don't find it every year locally. Another very similar one to this is Campfire.

Thank you! It's the right color for Christmas for sure! Hilarious! But it's a great contrast color in planters, even if they're loaded with other flowering plants. I usually have to keep my coleus trimmed or they can outgrow everything else. By fall the stems on them are as thick as shrubs, even when grown in planters.
