You will love Fantastik.
I of course had slept since I made the original list and his on-line catalog had grown from 375 to 400, so my order changed.
He sent me an e-mail and will have even more next summer.
He is getting new cultivars from our buddy Chris Baker.
I ordered a Dancing Gypsy. Chris let me name it on my last visit.
He remembered me from my order 2 years ago.

Kell, did you order? I've still not made my order out but plan to tonight.

I did order from Gebhart's last year and was extremely pleased. And they sent loads of bonus plants. Way more than I ever expected.

I'm certainly getting Live Wire, it's a must have! Sunshine, when you went to Chris' a few years ago that is one that you sent me and I loved it. It's just drop dead gorgeous and I'm so excited to get it again.

Here's Live Wire (not a great pic) and I loved it so much. It has much more color than this pic shows.

I need to go back and look at my order with them from last year. They had one that I ordered that was just fabulous and now I can't remember what it was.

I just noticed all the new coleus that they've added to their site. Wow! https://p10.secure.hostingprod.com/@www.gebhartgreenhouse.co...

Mine either! LOL I was going to post all my beauties and now can't get the list.

But I would almost bet that they were blasted with orders and might be a bit behind. Maybe in a week or so we might be able to see our order.

LOL Allison, I knew I wouldn't remember either but I thought I could go back to the website and get my order. He must be waiting on putting the orders up since he's given a discount for the co-op. I need to become organized like you are! Certainly not a very strong characteristic of mine anymore.

Oh well.... I guess it will all be a big surprise.
