A simple selection of colorful coleus is an easy choice for summer color but how do you choose coleus combinations when there are so many options? Think about height and sun exposure requirements as included on the plant tags, and choose accordingly. We also like to have a spreading form in the mix.
Some people prefer lots of contrasting colors, other combine different forms and textures of the same color. There is no right or wrong combination as long as sun exposure is considered, rather is a matter of color preference. So go wild with color if you like, or mono-tone if that’s more your style – just plan to enjoy a summer of color with coleus.
