Coleus ‘Tickled Scarlet’

Coleus Tickled series, a Chris Baker introduction, offers striking foliage of scarlet red centers and bright green outlined frills. While some Coleuses tolerate full sun, a partly shaded environment will bring out the full color potential in your landscape or mixed container. Being original to the tropics, Tickled Scarlet will not tolerate a frost, and thrives in a warmer climate. The summer season brings blue and purple spiked flowers to contrast the outrageously large, vibrant leaves. The bold colors provide an attention-grabbing effect wherever placed.

Hardy to Zones: 10-11
