Hi I am new to this forum but not to coleus I seem to come back to this plant every once in awhile and really love to see how popular they are getting. I have recently picked up some seed grown varieties and have been looking for some perennial varieties that I can grow into standards. I have been poking around looking for online suppliers and only really find one that has much of a selection I have purchased from this company in the past and was not really happy with the order I received. I was wondering if anyone here knows any suppliers that have plants for sale this time of year and might be able to point me in that direction? Also I have really been enjoying all your photos and great information here.

Thank you,

John

Thank you for the welcome and your links looks like some great places to find plants and seeds. I did find someone on ebay that was selling cuttings and have some on the way will see how that goes.

Welcome, John! What a cheery smile!

I don't buy plants that way, so don't have any suggestions but wish you luck finding what you like! Hope you'll let us know how it goes and what lovely plants you find.

All Coleus are perennials, BTW, so no worries about happening to encounter a true annual. Growing ones' own saved seeds can result in some interesting plants as well.
