I bought my first Coleus ‘Electric Lime’ in 2011. I always buy one of these if I can find them because they are a great Coleus! They make any shady area brighter and seem to just glow. They are great planted next to plants with darker leaves for a contrasting color.

It has been 6 years from the time I am writing this page from them I grew this plant. I think I overwintered the above pot of Coleus ‘Electric Lime’ as cuttings of the one in the first photo.

When I moved back to Missouri in February 2013 I had to give up most of my plants. Was glad to find a Coleus ‘Electric Lime’ in 2014. I was sure I had one besides 2014 but I don’t have photos of any since then.

Coleus ‘Electric Lime’ always does very well and I highly recommend it to anyone. If it flowers, like this one, it is best to pinch them off. The plants do much better.
