Coleus salmon pink plant

Coleus Salmon Pink is an exotic foliage cultivar that has unusually large, bright green leaves with a pink midrib. Coleus Salmon Pink is an excellent container and garden plant for shade. On well-branched plants, large leaves with distinct patterns. This shade choice is ideal for large containers, mixed combos, and landscapes. Also works with indoor plant programs. It prefers full shade for best results.

The utilisation of unexpected colour combinations on leaves in Coleus salmon pink shade garden beds and containers adds appeal. The appealing broad serrated pointy leaves of the Salmon Pink Coleus retain light green in colour with unusual coral-pink veins and tinges of dark crimson throughout the year on a plant with an upright spreading style of growth. There are many branches on these colourful plants, and each leaf has a unique pattern. When grown in full shade, these foliage plants may tolerate hot summers with little maintenance. Growing these flower seeds is a fascinating experience.

Maintenance:

  • This plant thrives in partial to full shade. It thrives in an evenly wet, well-drained soil, but will perish in standing water. 
  • It doesn’t care about the pH of the soil; however, it prefers rich soils. It is extremely tolerant of urban pollutants and can even survive in densely populated areas. 
  • During the growing season, spread a thick mulch around the root zone to conserve soil moisture. 
  • The amount of light a plant receives can have a significant impact on its size and colour. A site with early sun and partial afternoon shadow are ideal for the best leaf colour. 
  • Darker-leaved types are better at handling more sunlight than lighter-leaved varieties. Also, because their semi-succulent stems are prone to breakage, pick a wind-protected location.
  • Coleus grows well in most damp, well-draining soils. In pots, use high-quality, well-draining potting soil.
  • Coleus thrives when fertilised on a regular basis. When planting pots, use a slow-release fertiliser and supplement with a water-soluble fertiliser every two weeks or as needed

Benefits:

  • High blood pressure, chest pain (angina), asthma, dry eye, and a variety of other diseases are all treated with coleus or forskolin, although there is no clear scientific evidence to back up any of these claims.
  • Coleus is cultivated as ornamental plants.
