When needing a variety of color and texture in a container planter or hanging basket, consider using coleus as the centerpiece and work from there. Its mounding habit adds height, texture and complex colors to the summer garden. 'Marquee Special Effects' coleus has subtle variations in greens, reds/pinks, and yellow tones, and can handle shade or sun. Colors may shift depending upon the amount of sunlight, as will the size of the mature plant. Pinching the tips of stems will control the height and make this annual even bushier. 'Marquee Special Effects' has been bred to delay flowering until late in the summer, or not at all.
