This one is hard to get a good pic of. it has large leaves and i think would make a nice planting all by itself... no name yet.

Here's another one.Thumb of 2010-08-26/eskinola/9d9546
... probably my favorite seedling. it reminds me of indian summer, but has much lighter coloration. alot of mottled yellow. which is striking. it's in unforgiving full sun, and doesn't scorch. pretty amazing to me. i love the leaf shape too.... also unnamed.

Here's the whole plant a little earlier this summer... it's pretty well branched with little need of pinching.

Here's another seedling photo taken earlier this summer. it's gotten alot bigger and more green now. i love the fingered fringes. Like the one in the first photo, it has large leaves that are somewhat rounded. it otok a while to take off growing, but now is growing in spades...

This is actually from 2009- "Fallen Angel." I admit, not a great photo. This plant was grown in too much sun. part shade is much better for it. it gets too green in more sun... in shadier locations, it gets a light cream center with fucschia veining....Thumb of 2010-08-26/eskinola/e87710

And this is "Isaac," another 2009 seedling of mine. This photo is of a plant grown out by Ray Rogers. It won a prize at the Philadelphia Flower Show earlier this year. I gave him some cuttings last year and he grew them out well. I still have to get some cuttings back from him at some point; my cuttings died over the winter. It's probably my my favorite. I named this coleus after my second son.Thumb of 2010-08-26/eskinola/aeaca8

Wow, I love that yellow one. The colors are so striking, they just jump out and grab you.
