Coleus NOVA® ‘Red Flare’
Self-branching with brightly colored foliage of deep red, lobed leaves with reddish-pink centers. The upright, compact habit in addition to being slow to flower, makes maintenance easier. Vigorous branching from the base makes this plant perfect for containers and hanging baskets.
