Container Flower Gardening Ideas: Black Dragon Coleus, Volcano Coleus

Sometimes, it can be very effective to use combinations of a single plant species to create contrast and drama. Here, Coleus is the star of a really simple, yet impressive, container garden display.

Black Dragon Coleus has amazing red and black leaves, available in all kinds of red shades. We've seen cerise all the way through blood red and into purple. Drama is guaranteed!

For the true explosion of other colors, you can't beat the aptly-named Volcano Coleus. Yellows, oranges, even yellow-green combinations... wow! These are amazing to look at.

Don't forget Coleus if you're looking to add some background color to another display. They do well in all kinds of containers and in most climates.
