Coleus blumei (Painted Nettle) Mix 6cm Pot
€3.50 “Price excl. VAT: €3.08”
A striking evergreen foliage plant. Grown for its bright colourful leaves rather than its tiny insignificant flowers. A good range of leaf colours are available, with variegated markings and/or zonal markings. Although a tender perennial, it is usually grown outside in Ireland as a half hardy annual. It can also be grown all-year-round as an indoor houseplant.
A very versatile plant, which provides a good summer show in flower beds, borders, pots and containers. Ideal for edging or bedding schemes. Makes a splendid backdrop for other flowering plants.
Grows well in both sun or dappled shade. Plant outside once all danger of frost has passed, in a moist humus-rich, well-drained soil. Spacing 1ft (30cm) apart. Pinch-out the growing tips and remove flower buds when they appear to encourage more bushy growth.
Grow indoor plants in a good loam compost, in bright to moderate light. Keep moist and at temperatures above 13°C.
