MATSUMURAE, green. This fashionista is on top of every season with some eye catching feature. Leaves emerge, with copious silver hairs over cream with pink margins. They then mature through pink and red colorations to dark green with a red to burgundy flush. Ariadne then heralds the fall with yellow to red fall foliage contrasting her dark stems. A lovely addition to our selection. Can you keep up with her costume changes?

Ariadne is a member of the Shigitatsu sawa group. It has orange-pink coleus spring growth with leaves that mature to a maroon red. The fall color is red. At maturity it is a short stocky plant, wider than it is tall, reaching approximately 10’.

Ariadne is one of those spring reticulations that make you gasp in awe at the beauty. Unfortunately, by mid summer, it is pretty much gone. Fall sees something of a comeback, but the question is: will a picture of the spring color make you want the plant. It did me.

Highly prized for its ever-changing colors ; elegant gracefully-arching habit (to 6-8'high ; wide) ; long, finely cut leaves which open pale orng-pink with yellow veins ; change to red-veins on purple-red. PSh-Sh/M
