Very pretty, Lynn!
Allison, that coleus is so easy to propagate. I have broken off numerous stems to put in other pots and they just seem to root. Are all coleus like that?

almost all of them are like that.. as long as they stay moist .. don't dry out.. and out of direct sun until they root.. then you are good to go.. just the easiest plants aren't they?

I hope they are the easiest. Years ago I tried growing them and just kept killing them. I lived in eastern WA then . Maybe I will have success here in a more temperate climate.

Maybe I better start growing more coleus. Better wait to see how these do for me. I have one other red one that is so beautiful. It's called Red Head.

I am due to take update shots of my posts.. always amazing to see what a month does.. even though the birds & squirrels beat up a few of my containers that are too close to the feeders.. a Darth Vader coleus I have is almost gone due to them.. and it is usually a really strong grower.. I am so bummed.. every time I walked by and saw another piece broken.. I stuck it back in the same container.. and they just continued to beat on it Thumbs down going to have a gap in my "tree" this year Grumbling
