Sun-loving foliage celosia brings colour and texture to containers
With limited options for attractive foliage plants from seed, growers often turn to coleus to add interest and texture to containers. The NEW Sol™ Collection is a fantastic new foliage celosia with relatively fast production time and no downy mildew issues. It holds well at retail and expands the options for consumers looking for sun-loving foliage accent plants for patio planters with a different texture and look, as well as for quick-growing, low, shrub-like plants that look great at the front of the border.

Plug crop time: 3 to 4 weeks
Transplant to finish: Spring, 7 to 10 weeks

  • An attractive new foliage celosia collection for the market!
  • Two distinct bicolour foliage patterns are featured in the collection.
  • Offers relatively fast production time and no downy mildew issues.
  • Foliage tends to be more green when kept indoors, and it turns to burgundy when the plant is left outdoors for at least 1 to 2 weeks.
