Coleus is a great alternative for shade

coleus at Goodman's in Niagara Falls Many people with shade gardens used to plant lots and lots of impatiens, but since impatiens are now being affected by the disease called downy mildew, gardeners are looking for an alternative.

One way to get color in a shady garden is with coleus. The color is in the leaves and the plants will last all summer.

You can plant coleus directly in your garden beds or use them in containers.

While you’re at Goodman’s, pick up potting soil for your outdoor containers as well as mulch for your garden beds.
