Comments: The leaves of this coleus are royal red in color. This is an excellent choice to grow in a container as most of the coleuses are. Combine it with cultivars that are lighter in color to make a strong contrast. Fertilize container plants every month during the active growing season. This cultivar, as do most, root easily as cuttings place in a moist planting mix or in water.
