Whyever not? They'll grow just about anywhere as annuals, in containers if you'd like...unless you have no shade at all.

Monica - I am very lazy when it comes to watering.. I do have shade but I water so infrequently that they always croak on me. Sad

AHA, Toni...no, coleus is not a xeric plant, that's for sure.

After our big freeze when I lost a few tropicals, I wanted to print pictures of them and stake them in the gaping areas where they used to be. Maybe you could place photos around of plants you'd like to grow but don't..."this is where I'd have Wasabi if I grew it"...no watering required Smiling
