Coleus FLYING CARPET™ ‘Shocker’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our Licensees or Retail Sources.


A bright, lime-gold background shows off a red center that grows in size as the leaf ages. Leaves show only a lime corona edge at maturity. Excellent, well-branched and low habit, which makes FLYING CARPET™ 'Shocker' a great choice for an annual groundcover.
