Pollinators which Love Coleus Plants – Critter 22

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

I have seen different colors and shapes of Coleus plants in the gardens across our city.



Fight 01- Bright colors of Coleus plant.


I found some colors of Coleus plant leaves are:

- yellow

- pink

- green

- red

- purple, orange, etc


What make me wonder that from several sources that there is no blue color for Coleus leaves. I don’t know why.



Fig 02- Hummingbirds, a pollinator


Basically, the plants respond to light:

- more light cause darker colors

- less light makes plant brighter



Fig 03- Butterfly, a beautiful pollinator


The plant, actually, is including in mint family. They are great air purifiers as indoor plants.



Fig 04- A bee could interest to any blooming plants


In our states, Louisiana, the plant could “blooming” until late summer. The blooming time is quite longer compared to some other plants.



Fig 05- Dark colors of Coleus plant


Since plants can’t take cold, under F 50 (C 10) degrees. We might grow in the indoor pots under bright light.


Then bring plants outdoors in the spring when temperature warm enough (higher than F 50 or C 10 degrees).


The blooming Coleus plants are very attractive to pollinators:

- hummingbirds

- butterfly

- bees

- and other pollinators


Have you seen this plant?


If yes, what colors do you see?
