Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides) is stunning annual plant known for the wide variety of bright leaf color options. Select cultivars that grow tall enough and billow down far enough to cover the system’s living wall planters. Coleus holds up well throughout the summer into the fall months.
Some of our favorite cultivars include Coleus ‘Alabama’, ‘Pineapple’, ‘Defiance’, and ‘Dipt in Wine’. Yellow, orange and red cultivars pair particularly well with Persian Shield (Strobilanthus dyerianus).
