40 Black Dragon Coleus Seeds - Great indoors or out!

Tongues of Fire for the Shade!
Terrific texture, PLUS eye-catching red-to-violet color!

Breathe a little hot color into the shade border or sunny window this season with Black Dragon, an unusually richly-textured, warmly-colored foliage plant. Compact, very showy, and easy to grow, it's a must-have for anyone with a patch of shade (or empty flowerpot!) to call their own!

The leaves are spectacular, both for their red-to-midnight-purple color shading and their rippling edges, which give the plant much more presence than most Coleus. The leaves will turn color and begin to pucker at a very early age, making this one of the most fun seeds to start indoors. (For even fuller, bushier plants, pinch back the young tips a few times during the growth season.) I sowed a packet of Black Dragon in successive waves about a month apart, just to enjoy the young leaves that much longer!

This compact plant reaches about a foot high and nearly as wide in partial to full shade (or bright indirect light indoors). In the garden, it's a fine companion to everything from Begonias to Impatiens. Indoors, it fills a 6- to 8-inch pot beautifully with color that never quits!

Coleus germinates readily and grows eagerly. For bushier, fuller plants, keep the growing tips pinched. To extend the lush color into fall, remove any stray flower spikes that emerge -- they take energy away from maintaining the gorgeous foliage, and the flowers are insignificant. If growing in the garden, sow about 10 inches apart. If growing indoors for houseplants, sow at any time, placing the young plants in a well-lit window. Pkt is 40 seeds.

    Coleus Seeds

    Posted by Jess on Feb 22nd 2022

    I ordered the pack of 40 Coleus Red Dragon seeds. I was very disappointed to see that they only sent me at the most, maybe 15 seeds. I ordered several different types of seeds this year to start indoors, from several different vendors. This was by far the most depressing packet of seeds you’ve ever seen. I know they’re not expensive or anything, so it’s just whatever to me, but to be shorted on something that is already so tiny was such a let down. I did go ahead and plant them just as I did the other types I received and so far only one has sprouted. I’m still hopeful that maybe the others will come along, because it is still a little early. However, almost all of the other seeds I planted have all sprouted and my tray of coleus has just the one….all by himself. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone considering ordering these! I LOVE Coleus, especially the deep red types, so I really hoped I could save a little money this year and grow my own, but it’s not looking that way. Not from these seeds anyway!
