Black Dragon is an unusually richly-textured, warmly-coloured foliage plant. Compact, very showy, and easy to grow. The leaves are spectacular, both for their red-to-midnight-purple colour shading and their rippling edges, which give the plant much more presence than most Coleus. The leaves will turn colour and begin to pucker at a very early age, making this one of the most fun seeds to start indoors. 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. Coleus germinates readily and grows eagerly. For bushier, fuller plants, keep the growing tips pinched. 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.
