Planting coleus in a window box

Zone I live in Central New Jersey | chpanella added on April 19, 2015 | Answered

I would like to plant a variety of coleus in a 5 foot white vinyl window box in the front of my house. The morning is very shady and the sun doesn't make an appearance until the afternoon. What kind or color of coleus will do best?

A window box with partial shade should be perfect to grow coleus.
Keep in mind they can grow quickly.
I would visit your local garden center and choose varieties and colors that would appeal to you.
