How to Say Black Dragon Coleus Plant
Plant Features

The Black Dragon Coleus (Painted Nettle) plant is more shade-loving than most, having remarkable color even when the sunshine is limited. The unique leaves are beautifully scalloped, ruffled and corrugated for fantastic texture! This shade tolerant plant's color is almost self-explanatory: deep purplish-black margins surround a center that ranges in color from dark maroon to bright scarlet red, looking similar to a black dragon's maw. It will add texture, interest and color to mixed garden and container plantings.
