Coleus TERRA NOVA® ‘Electric Slide’
What could be better than an easy to grow Coleus that is equally at home in a bed or a hanging basket? With a strong, canary-yellow background, shocking red veins and a ruffled emerald edge, it's hard to keep your eyes off. Naturally neat and compact, very shy flowering with short violet blue flowers late in the season.
