I bought 4 of these because they are beautiful and coleus thrives in my mainly shaded garden. I have purchased Cole's from Grow Joy before and the plants, which arrive in 3" containers become HUGE!! It's a great investment.

I was rather hesitant to order coleus online, since they are a rather delicate plant, but it arrived healthy & undamaged & is now growing beautifully in my garden.

Arrived in perfect condition!

I am really excited to see this plant in maturity. As I am from Alabama (live in Ohio), I bought several for friends who haven't the chance to view Alabama sunsets. All arrived in perfect packaging and mine is looking wonderful after 3 weeks.

Healthy Plants

I've purchased from GrowJoy for the last several years and have never been disappointed. Always receive large, healthy, well packaged plants.

Growing fast

I usually order several different types of coleus from Grow Joy each season. I haven’t been able to get the Alabama Sunset before as it was sold out. This year I was able to get a few and they look great. Colors are attention getting. They’ve gotten so big. Deer leave them alone.

Love the variety of Coleus I can purchase from Growjoy. They all perform well with ease!

All of the Coleus I ordered and received were absolutely gorgeous! So excited to see these plants grow!

Colorful variety

This coleus really took off when I put it more in the shade. The colors became much more vibrant and at Christmas time from a distance, it was a beautiful burgundy. Now light a green is showing up in the new growth. I have a lovely photo to share if I can figure out how.
