Plant Features

The Chocolate Coleus (Painted Nettle) plant produces velvety leaves that are scalloped from the moment they unfurl. Emerging a vivid burgundy wine, the foliage, like fine wine, gets better with age, maturing gracefully to a rich, chocolaty purple. It retains its color, even in full sun, as long as its thirst is sated. Shade tolerant.

Companion Planting: Begonia, Calibrachoa, Fuchsia, Impatiens, Ipomoea

These healthy, vigorous plants arrived in great condition. I planted them in hanging baskets on our shady porch and they're growing very well. The Chocolate color is stunning.
