FlameThrower Spiced Curry Sun Coleus has narrow, serrated leaves that are predominantly chartreuse with dark red splotched in the center and as a narrow band on the outer edge. This new series has a more compact habit that makes it well suited for small pots and mixed containers. Whether in sun or shade, FlameThrower makes a big impact. With so many different varieties of sun coleus on the market now, there is one for everyone’s taste. Sun Coleus has 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 Coleus are probably one of the easiest annuals to grow.
