can Coleus handle?

The local garden centre had some really nice ones that I could not leave behind. I'm thinking they'd look great in planters down my front steps. They'd get about 5 hours of afternoon/evening sun (Canadian sun Big Grin ). Would that be too much? If so I could always put them on my back steps, which get morning sun up until about 1pm.

I believe they will all do well in your afternoon sun. They may want an evening drink.
