Terra Nova Nurseries
Coleus Maharaja is a vigorous spreading plant with deep, oxblood-burgundy leaves with gold edges. Its foliage height of 12 in., foliage spread of 30 in. and small, trailing habit make it ideal for many uses in the garden and landscape. It also serves well as a colorful houseplant. This variety is well-suited for regions with heat and humidity, such as the Deep South, and it thrives in shade to part shade. Well-drained soil with moderate organic content is required.

EuroAmerican Propagators
Dyckia brevifolia Grand Marnier displays long gray-green leaves that are covered in silvery white scale-like hairs, giving the plant an overall white appearance. The leaves twist and curl downwards with claw-like spines on the margins. Grand Marnier can take extended dry periods, but an occasional watering can go a long way. Excellent in containers, rock gardens and in xeriscaping. GT
