In the afternoon shade, this beautiful coleus looks black.
It looks good mixed with other leafy ornamentals like coleus and heuchera plants. I love coleus because it gives you color all season. Flowers are good for a week our two. But the coleus always has that color or texture or shape.
New coleus are being created very quickly these days. So, I like that they are a frost sensitive annual. To me it means I can try several new ones every year.
