Coleus Stained Glassworks™ Big Blonde
My first experience with this AWESOME Coleus was in 2014 when I was living in the mansion in Mississippi. I am pretty sure it came from Pleasant Acres Nursery in Leland, Mississippi but my notes don’t say. This plant grew and grew and became quite large.
I am not 100% sure where this Coleus originated from. It is trademarked under the name Stained Glassworks™ ‘Big Blonde’ possibly from Monrovia. One website said the originator was Ecke, which would possibly be the Ecke Ranch… SO, I am just not sure.
No matter where it came from, who trademarked the name, or who the originator was, this is one of the many great Coleus cultivars available.
Growing to a height and spread or around 36”, Coleus ‘Big Blonde’ will make a dramatic display in your bed or container.
The bright chartreuse leaves and maroon stems of Coleus ‘Big Blonde’ make a bright addition to the garden.
I saw this moth one morning and thought it would make a good photo.
I had to borrow a friend’s camera for a while and his brightness settings were not set correctly. I didn’t know that until after I took MANY photos…
I took cuttings of several of the Coleus I grew in 2012 so I could overwinter them for 2013. Unfortunately, I moved back to the farm in mid-Missouri and left the cuttings with a friend. I have not found any Coleus ‘Big Blonde’ at any of the greenhouses or garden centers since.
If you haven’t tried growing the Coleus ‘Big Blonde’, I suggest you give it a try. I think you will really like it. I have not seen this plant available locally.
I hope you have found this information helpful. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear them.
