Coleus Versa™ Crimson Gold by Ball Hort has stolen my heart. I’m not usually a coleus person but have changed my mind with the new sun/shade varieties that have been out a few years.
I’m growing it in containers and in the ground. It has tolerated the high heat and humidity of this NC zone 7a summer.
You really shouldn’t let it flower so today I trimmed it up a bit. It will stop growing when it flowers.
We had temps in the upper 90’s for weeks and it was very dry. I did water regularly but this kept pace with the vinca and gaura. I’m very impressed.
