ColorBlaze® ‘Dipt in Wine’ Coleus
I acquired my first Coleus ColorBlaze® ‘Dipt in Wine’ from Pleasant Acres Nursery in Leland, Mississippi in the spring of 2012.

ColorBlaze® ‘Dipt in Wine’ Coleus is a multiple award winner including: Multiple awards from the Kansas State University as a top performer in 2011-2012, 2010 Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank, 2011 Best of the Best Award from the Champaign County Illinois Master Gardener Idea Garden, 2012 Hall of Fame from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical garden.
I took several cuttings of all the Coleus in October 2012 to overwinter for 2013. Unfortunately, I moved from the mansion in Mississippi in February 2013 to return to Missouri. I gave all my Coleus cuttings to a friend.
I bought two Coleus ‘Dipt in Wine’ from Wagler’s Greenhouse in the spring of 2015.
I decided to buy two because one wasn’t enough…
I decided to put #1 in the flower bed along the north side of the house.
I transplanted #2 into a larger pot and left it on a plant table next to the shed where most of my other potted plants were. Here, it received filtered sun in the morning and a good amount of afternoon sun.
#1 did very well in the north bed as all Coleus I have planted in this bed have done.
#2 performed equally as well in its pot.
#1 looking very well in July 2015. I don’t know why I didn’t take a photo of #2 on this day.
Coming close to the end of the season, #1, as you can see, was AWESOME!!!!
#2 did very well, too, but as you can see, not as well as #1 in the bed.
I found another ‘Dipt in Wine’ in the spring of 2016 at Wagler’s Greenhouse. I planted this one in the north bed, too. I didn’t take photos earlier because I had to buy another camera…
The Coleus selection wasn’t very good in 2017, so I didn’t find any ‘Dipt in Wine’. That is a good reason you should try and take cuttings of your favorites. You never know what will be available.
I have always liked the color and performance of the ColorBlaze® ‘Dipt in Wine’ Coleus. I highly recommend it to anyone.
