Neon lights are so bright! Move over Las Vegas lights and say hello to Pink Chaos Coleus. Also known as Solenostemon scutellarioides, this coleus has a diverse and unique color palette. Pink Chaos Coleus displays a fiery pink dragon’s tongue pattern outlined in green, red, and white hues all over its leaves. This particular coleus forms a dense, upright habit reaching 6 to 18 inches in height and grows 10 to 16 inches in spread. Expect foliage interest all Spring and Summer outdoors and it works great as a houseplant the rest of the seasons.

This coleus is a unique beauty. It is native to the tropical climate of Malaysia, so it thrives in hot conditions. It is admired for its vibrant foliage that is especially unappetizing to deer. Coleus is a mint family relative and similarly has notable vigor and tenacity that is quite remarkable. Plant this gem as a thriller in combination containers or use numerous plants to illuminate a shady garden landscape.

Pink Chaos Coleus Care

Versatile and vigorous, this coleus prefers part sun to full shade conditions. The more sun the less vibrant the leaf color becomes. It is not picky, requiring well-draining soil and it has average watering needs. Trim this plant back and cut back flower spikes to promote more foliage. Apply fertilizer or compost annually to garden beds and apply a regular fertilizing regime for container plants.

Coleus is a tender perennial in zones 10 to 11, but for more of the temperate zones, coleus is an annual. If left outside to overwinter, frost would be detrimental to this plant. To overcome this concern, overwinter Coleus as an indoor houseplant and enjoy it all Winter long.

Pink Chaos Coleus Spacing

Give Coleus ample room and space to grow. We recommend a 12 inch or larger pot when growing this plant in a container. Give this plant at least 8 to 12 inches of space when planting in any landscape site or container for best results.

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.
