Blooming season: grown primarily for their foliage
Plant habit: most are fairly upright, though Burgundy Trailing is a much lower, spreading habit.
Characteristics: colorful attractive foliage
Spacing: 12″ for small varieties; you can give the big ones more room (15″+) to ensure adequate ventilation and stem strength but we know that some customers prefer closer spacing
Height: except for Trailing Burgundy, Chaotic Rose and maybe Lava Rose, which will stay shorter, coleus can get pretty big- up to 2 1/2-3′ for Alabama Sunset, Gay’s Delight, Redhead and Mariposa.
