Container Role: Filler
Amount of Shade: Full Shade
Caladiums, Big Leaf Coleus and Perilla come in a myriad of brightly colored leaves, many of which are more purple than blue.
But I like to include them in my pots because they absolutely thrive in the shade.
Then I saw these blue ones that look absolutely stunning! I have only been able to find them in seeds (HERE*), so we’ll see how they turn out!
Since they do so well in full shade, these plants are a perfect thriller to combine with Browallia and Streptocarpella.
Update: After a couple of tries, I have not been able to get these blue coleus seeds to grow. If any of you have tried them and got them to grow successully, I would love to hear about it!
