Coleus, Sun-Loving Trailing

Trailing sun-loving coleus is an easy-to-grow annual foliage plant that adapts well to hanging baskets and container gardens where it sprawling stems can drape over the edge of the planter. You also can plant it at the front of garden beds where it will intertwine with flowering annuals and perennials to bring color to the landscape.

Most trailing coleus have smaller leaves than upright growers, reaching only about an inch long.
