New Coleus Cultivars

Coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides) is a great plant for the landscape in Florida.  It is hardy in the summer and extremely visually attractive.  In fact, at my stint at the FNGLA Floriculture Field Trial, many visitors to the garden picked coleus as one of their favorites.    

The University of Florida Environmental Horticulture Department (Dr. David Clark) is releasing six new coleus cultivars (pictures above) through the Florida Foundation Seed Producers (FFSP) company.  FFSP is now taking Intrest to Negotiate proposals to license these cultivars to get them into production.  If your company is interested in submitting a proposal please click here for more information.  http://ffsp.net/resources/ITN13-05-10.pdf
