Chocolate Mint ColeusChocolate Mint Coleus has a rich brown center with mint green scalloped edges.  Though they aren’t quite as tasty as the candy, they do bring an element of contrast to your flower bed or mixed container.

Coleus is a tropical plant grown as a summer annual for its variously colored foliage.  The small, blue to white, Salvia-like flowers are insignificant.  Chocolate Mint Coleus performs best in moist well drained soil in shaded locations, but can adapt to lesser sites.

Coleus is heat tolerant but not particularly drought tolerant. If you like those little chocolate mint candies that they hand out at certain restaurants, then this is the plant for you.

A Fantastic Foliage™, a Hot Summer Survivors and a Made for the Shade selection!
