Strawberry Drop's colorful green leaves have red venation with a bright red and yellow center, but what makes it really unique is its trailing habit! While it gets to be 14" tall, it will trail up to 24" making it perfect as a spiller component in containers.It performs well in both sun and shade, as long as there is reasonable humidity. In very low humidity environments, it will need afternoon shade. Sun to shade tolerant and great in both landscapes and containers. It is late to bloom, which helps preserve the foliage presentation throughout the season.Like all ColorBlaze®Coleus, it is bred to take the heat and bloom very late in the season, if at all, extending its garden performance into the fall.

Maintenance Notes: 

Many people feel that coleus look best before they flower. We have worked hard to choose coleus that bloom late in the season or not at all. To keep foliage in top shape, pinch off the blooms as they appear if you wish.
