(Coleus) COLORBLAZE® Dark Star Solenostemon has stunning dark purple foliage all season long. COLORBLAZE® Dark Star looks beautiful when complimented with lighter colored plants. It will form a nice mound up to 24 inches high and wide, and can be planted in sun to shade locations. Versatile, easy to grow, and deer resistant too! What's not to love about COLORBLAZE® Dark Star? Use as a thriller plant in your containers and borders. You may pinch off the blooms as they appear if so desired, as many gardeners grow coleus for the foliage alone. If blooms are left on the plant, the flowers will attract hummingbirds.
