Many gardeners enjoy growing plants into trees (also known as standards) that normally grow in other directions. Bay and rosemary are two examples of herbs that can be trained this way. Fuschias and geraniums are two flowering examples that take to this technique. However, some of these plants take years to reach the tree (standard) stage. However, since coleus grow so quickly, it’s possible to grow a coleus standard in only six months. That is why many gardeners love to learn how to grow a coleus tree.
