(Coleus) Color does not always have to come in the form of flowers. Here we introduce, COLORBLAZE® VELVETEEN® Coleus. Coleus are a great addition to combination planters. The soft velvet looking foliage of COLORBLAZE® VELVETEEN® has bright magenta foliage edged in burgundy. The heavily serrated leaves add great texture to combination planters. Standing 24 to 36 inches tall, VELVETEEN® makes a great thriller in combination planters. If you prefer a shorter, bushier look, you can trim your coleus back at any time. The COLORBLAZE® series have been breed to flower late in the season or not at all so your plants stay their fullest and nicest looking all season long. If a flower is forming, we recommend pinching it off although some people do enjoy the flowers. VELVETEEN® is deer resistant and attracts hummingbirds.
