Compact growing, 10-12 inch tall plants with good branching near to soil so the plants lack the need to be pinched to produce nice tight clumps of attractive foliage. Coleus 'Wizard Scarlet' has reddish scarlet leaves with thin golden green margins. A colorful addition to shaded borders and patio containers. The 'Wizard' series is bread to be good growers in afternoon or filtered shade and do best in soils that are moist but not wet. This tropical species is a perennial, and they can be grown inside in a moderately bright window. Plants as a rule dislike dry soils.
