Red Coleus

Red Head Sun Coleus is similar to Henna in habit.  It’s bright red color is the truest red of the Ball collection.  It has a good branching habit and flowers late. There are so many different varieties of sun coleus on the market now, there is one for everyone’s taste. Sun Coleus have attractive foliage that add contrast to landscapes and containers. They are called ‘Sun Coleus’ due to the ability of these varieties to perform well in full sun and should not be confused with regular coleus varieties that require shade. Sun Coleuses are probably one of the easiest annuals to grow.
