Comments: The main feature of this coleus is the abundance of relatively small chartreuse colored leaves,the same color as 'Granny Smith' apples. Coleuses make excellent container plants. The color impact is immediate because the primary feature is from the foliage not the rather low key flowering that occurs in late summer. These flowers should be removed to encourage plants to produce more foliage.
