Rainbow Mix Coleus - Art Seed Packs


Among foliage enthusiasts, Coleus, in particular, is a favorite. Since the Victorian era, landscape designers have prized Coleus for its creative potential in the garden, sometimes using the high-contrast leaves to create ornate “carpet bedding” displays. The Victorians loved these designs made from flowers, low-growing foliage plants, and topiary–and used them to create crowd-pleasing horticultural spectacles. Although carpet bedding eventually fell out of fashion, Coleus retained its star power due to its beauty, versatility, and charm. Grow its stunning foliage to brighten shady corners and add contrast to flower beds.

This mix is a true rainbow of colors, including: pinks, burgundy, yellow, bronze, purple, white, lime and dark greens. An incredibly versatile plant that tolerates a range of sun/shade and soil conditions, Coleus grows just as happily in the ground or in containers, and can even be brought indoors for a lovely houseplant. Can be pinched back to encourage a shorter, bushier habit.

About Art Seed Packs: Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
