I bought my Coleus ‘Pineapple Splash’™ from Pleasant Acres Nursery in Leland, Mississippi in the spring of 2012 while I was living at the mansion.

Coleus ‘Pineapple Splash’™ is a trademark name of Proven Winners.

According to the Proven Winner’s website, Coleus ‘Pineapple Splash’™ is an upright growing Coleus that will reach 24-36” tall.

They perform their best in part shade to full sun, as long as they have plenty of water.

They perform well in beds as well as containers but need more thorough watering in pots.

When flowers appear they should removed to keep the plants looking their best. Flowering causes Coleus to degrade as it takes a lot of their energy.

Remember, if you want to save your Coleus over winter, it is best to take cuttings late in the summer. Take cuttings before it gets to cold and plants start to decline from decreasing day length and cooler night temperatures.

I really enjoyed my Coleus ‘Pineapple Splash’ and give them a five gold star rating for color, growth, heat tolerance, etc. I highly recommend you give them a try.

I hope this information was useful. If you have any questions of comments I would love to hear them.
