Two new plants are joining the list of Louisiana Super Plants this spring. Henna coleus is the first.
Henna is a great landscape performer. Planted in spring when danger of frost has passed, plants will last until first frost in the fall. More information on this great plant:
– Warm-season bedding plant.
– Grows to about 24 to 30 inches tall.
– Outstanding performance at the AgCenter Hammond Research Station over a number of years.
– Full sun to part shade.
– Colorful foliage in shades of gold and chartreuse brushed with burgundy on top and burgundy underneath and deeply toothed along the edges.
– Very heat tolerant.
– No major pests.
– Full, bushy growth habit.
– Very late blooming (flowering is undesirable as it detracts from the colorful foliage).
