Can you grow coleus outdoors?

I have a potted one inside that I would like to transplant outside.


Answer by  lou (792)

Coleus grows very well outdoors. Plant in an area that receives partial shade during the day. Coleus will grow quickly in soil that has good drainage.

As long as you plant them in a moist well drained spot in full sun or partial shade. Don't plant them any deeper than they were in the pot.

The first thing you have to be sure of is that the soil is warm enough and the nights are staying warm enough for it to be outside.

Absolutely, coleus loves being outside but not for harsh winters. Keep coleus in a low light, shady spot, pinch back for bushier growth and keep well watered. You may leave it in the pot for summer and bring it back inside for the winter. Take cuttings for more plants.

Yes! Definitely. You can grow coleus outdoors in a temperate climate. They like to be in a place that gets some shade.
