ColorBlaze® Velveteen® Coleus might appear dramatic, but it is remarkably well behaved and easygoing. It proves that a stunning presentation does not always require much in preparation. The deep burgundy foliage blushes with fuchsia centers and understated variegation. Coleus foliage looks best before they bloom, and ColorBlaze® Velveteen® has a very late bloom. Some gardeners will find that theirs don’t bloom at all. Plus, this variety does well in either sun or shade, and is adaptable as a houseplant.

A “thriller” to its core, ColorBlaze® Velveteen® catches the eye with an upright habit that can grow up to 40” high at maturity. Lovely in large combination containers, the unique foliage complements its blooming companions in a way that others simply cannot. Plus, many will find that the colorful foliage and upright habit makes it great planted in stately containers on its own. ColorBlaze® Velveteen® do well in landscapes, as well, adding visual and textural interest to the space.

ColorBlaze® Velveteen® Coleus Care

If your Coleus begins to bloom, simply pinch off flowers to keep the foliage tidy. Fertilize upon planting with compost or a well-balanced fertilizer. Regularly fertilize containers to get the best performance. Water when soil is dry to the touch.

ColorBlaze® Velveteen® Coleus can be brought indoors as a houseplant at the end of the season. In order to grow it successfully indoors, you should only choose the healthiest plants to bring in. Be sure to bring it indoors before the first frost to avoid damage. It will do best in a bright, humid place. Only water when the top inch of soil is dry to avoid overwatering. Slowly get your plant used to the outdoors when spring arrives, and prune and fertilize at the start of the warm season to get best results.

ColorBlaze® Velveteen® Coleus Spacing

The upright ColorBlaze® Velveteen® Coleus can grow over three feet high in the best conditions, and only spreads to 16”. Plant them 12-16” apart, with a little less space in containers. They’ll do best in larger containers.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
