Question: Is there anything special I need to know about growing coleus for their pretty leaves?

Answer: Most of the coleus you’re able to buy now will be cutting-grown types. These are selections that have been made because of their vegetative habits. Flowers cause coleus to stop producing new and colorful foliage. Pinch their growing tips out, to keep the plants full and compact. Your nurseryman will even be able to show you some of the newer types that are more tolerant of bright Texas sun.
