Coleus or Painted Needle

These bright colored annuals have an almost ornamental look to them. Their splashy variegated leaves sport colors of pink, red, purple, bronze, or orange. They grow to be about 10-20″ high but like part shade conditions. Depending on the variety though, full sun may be ok. They are good for beds, borders, or pots. Coleus is a great annual for that striking look needed in every garden.
