Description

A fascinating blend of colour combinations and leaf forms.

Coleus has recently been renamed as Solenostemon but whatever you call them these are lovely foliage plants.

They can be grown as conservatory or house plants, but Warpaint is also ideal in warm, sheltered spots outdoors, providing a riot of colour in patio tubs and bedding schemes.

Pinch out flower shoots as they appear to retain bushy plant habit.

Ideal for bedding

How to Guide

Sowing Indoors

Almost fill a seed tray with moist seed compost. Sow seeds thinly over the surface, and lightly cover them with a trace of vermiculite or sifted compost. Place in warmth 20-25C (70-75F), and keep moist.

Sowing Distance

25cm / 10in

Potting on/Thining Out

Keep seedlings in a light position, but shade from bright sun. When large enough to handle, transplant 5cm (2in) apart into trays of potting compost.

Hardening Off/Planting Out

Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out when danger of frost has passed. Allow 25cm (10in) between plants.

Aftercare

Pinch out flower shoots as they appear to retain bushy plant habit.
