Raquel's Garden

Coleus "Wizard Mix" (RIP)

Genus: Solenostemon.

Species: Solenostemon scutellarioides.

Trying it out in the shady area of the stairwell. Planted with white and pink polka dot plants. Unfortunately it never did well. In the shade it developed mushrooms and the soil was too soggy...on the balcony the heat and the sun were too much for it and the recent heat wave (101 F -104 F) (38 C - 40 C) finished them off completely. Too bad because they are beautiful plants!
