Yes, what Allison said.
I was so eager I forgot to log in and lost my cart the first time.
They might have changed the site some,or my memory is just getting worse.
Lucky I didnt have a long list and had made notes anyway.
Many of my containers have perennials in them so I dont really need the huge orders I used to do.
The garden is also full.It will be 6 years this spring when I started.

Jo Ann,
Have you grown any of these? I have had a few duds over the years they just never grew well. Just wondering and getting my order together. I was thinking a few of these will look good with the Pink Dragon Wings I'm growing.
Elfers
Flamingo
Florida Inferno
Limon Blush
Peachy Keen
Golda
Jade Parade

I have grown Elfers.Its really big and bushy.In full sun the leaves turn a dried blood color,almost chocolate.It really shows well in mostly shade.
Not familier with the others,
#1 in the back sorry cant remember the other coleus but I didnt grow them again due to poor performance
Thumb of 2013-01-13/ge1836/e39c90
#2 This is Elfers with Glory another favorite

Thanks Jo Ann,
I may not get Elfers because I have a cutting that looks much like that. The picture at RD is different, I think, will go back and look.
I'm looking for good growers because here the coleus can not go out until about the first of June. The springs have been so cold and wet.

I agree about RD image.Thats what it does in shade.Mine were part shade near full sun.
Here it is in full sun,the chocolate color.I dont think I have had it in shade where it looks like RD.

Thanks, really pretty but I have some like that. I don't need to order any but, want to get a few different looking coleus to mix with the cuttings that I have saved. Always like a few new ones!

Sounds like a good idea
Thats how I find new faves.I have also found some new favorites when RD sends bonuses. Velvet Mocha didnt look like much but when mature it is just heavenly.
