Coleus TERRA NOVA® ‘Cuckoo’
'Cuckoo' has the most uniquely lobed foliage; nearly palmate with a few extra fingers here and there. Each crazy leaf has an deep red base and a brilliant gold-lime border. Its natural form is a full, eye-pleasing mound, without a single pinch or drop of PGR. Baskets, bowls, beds – it's all the same if you're 'Cuckoo'.
