Answer: There are many attractive varieties of coleus available. Some are started from seeds but the most eye-catching and specially named forms are started from cuttings in order to ensure that the same distinctive pattern is carried through onto the new plant. Burpee (www.burpee.com or 800-888-1447) offers seeds for the "Wizard Mix" (as well as plants) which includes many lovely but variable patterns and colors as would occur in any seed mix. For the more spectacular named plants started from cuttings for complete predictability you will need to visit your local garden centers this spring.
