At last, all the glorious Kong varieties in one mix, guaranteeing you the full range of bright colours and patterns. This Empire Mix contains Kong Mosaic, Salmon Pink, Red, Rose, and Scarlet, for an unprecedented display of bold foliage in garden and container.
Kong is a shade-loving coleus renowned for its larger leaves and bolder patterns on very compact plants. Just 18 to 20 inches high, it reaches 15 to 18 inches wide, yet the leaves can be fully a foot long. Neatly serrated, they are patterned in brilliant combinations of reds, greens, whites, creams, yellows, and even hard-to-find pinks.
This annual is prized for its ease of growth and "always in bloom" nonstop colour. It thrives in partial shade and any good, well-drained soil. As flower spikes begin to form above the leaves, snip them away promptly. This will promote even more lush leaves to set, and will keep your Kongs at their very best.
