Lime green continues to be one of the hottest colors in the garden, and a coleus, Wasabi, provides it like few others. Electric Lime has always been my favorite but I find myself daily pinching out flowers. But Wasabi, with its showy serrated leaves, has not had its first bloom.

While lime green or chartreuse is a color that shouts “look at me,” it also somehow makes all other colors look stunning. Foliage plants like Wasabi can also serve as a transition color, tying the garden together when you might otherwise have a clashing of colors. It is like a mediator between rivals, bring tranquility to the garden.
