Compact, micro coleus is the first of its kind in our assortment! Holds its color very well in full sun or shade, and is very late to flower. Plant is self-branching, so no pinch or PGRs are needed. It is 50% more compact than FlameThrower, even when in the landscape. Versatile for use in combos, containers and landscape borders, and great for urban gardeners' balconies or small patios. No other micro coleus has such vibrant pink and lime green coloring with this unique leaf shape.
