C is for coleus

(equally S is for Solenostemon scutellarioides)  – plants that come from India and Thailand and get called the ‘painted nettle’.  You will either love them or hate them – seen in droves when I visited the trial grounds of Ball and Colegrave in the summer.  Run your eye down this lot, if you like them pay zealous attention to Plant Me Now’s online catalogue as B&C supply them and their purchasing manager was salivating over these plants too….pretty sure of that.

For me, on the intent list, coleus as plugs or from seed next year to take over from the tulips in the show-off bed.

    Oh yes, there are some lovely ones there that I’m sure will go with other foliage plants.
