So your garden needs some help? Kong Coleus to the rescue! His massive leaves of color turn any drab area to a mass of giant color.
When Victorian gardeners developed a passion for the shade-loving coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides, Solenostemon scutellarioides) plant, they had no idea their efforts would eventually unleash monsters. Well more than a century later, Kong coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides “Kong Series”) arrived on the scene with gorilla hand-sized leaves in a dizzying choice of red, pink and green combinations. With part sun or shade and organically rich, well-drained soil, Kong coleus is an easy-care plant. And it thrives in the heat! It’s even deer resistant. I guess the deer are finally afraid of something – the Kong! Here’s a picture of the Kong Mosaic series — how cool is that?!
