This is my first year growing Coleus, and now that winter is coming on, I'm not sure what to do with them?
I think I may have left them outside too long as our temps dropped into the 30's 2 nights in a row and these babies are looking unhappy.

They're in containers, and I want to grow them that way, not plant them.
So should I bring them inside for the winter? Prune them down? Put them in the garage?

I'm sooo confused.
