Coleus x blumei
A fave back in Victorian times during the “Coleus Craze” when people went cuckoo for Coleus, it’s easy to see why folks loved this deep purple-black, velvety soft leaved gem. Ginormous leaves are 6” long and 3-4” wide, making it the largest leaved Coleus on the block. Growing to 16” tall and wide, it’s fun combined with Nicotiana langsdorfii. Excellent kick of contrast for Summer containers and can be kept as a houseplant, too! Snip off flowers for best foliage show.
