The coleus order is all set. I may change some of the annuals but these are pretty much done.

Jo Ann, what eye candy those combos are. Lovey dubby
I particularly love the Sage 'Golden Delicious' and the Coleus 'Trailing Red' and Trailing Black'

Thanks to you and and some other here, I had a great time with my three coleus plants that I tried. They stayed beautiful until killing frost.
I am definitely grow coleus next year.

Were do you get your coleus from?

I guess the "buy more than I have room for" is a gardeners disease. I sure have it.

Some of those look like old friends,Sedona at the far right ,I'm not sure which deep purple leaf that one is but Mahogany Giant is still a fave here,it gets really big.,Lord Voldemort is beautiful but it's not fabulous here,might not be humid enough,I have tried it and would again.
The yellow edged red one could be Fiesta ,it was a great plant.
Now that I have enlarged the photo I realize I am 100% wrong on any id's I tried. The trailing ones do well.I ordered Tr.Red.

Oh c'mon guys! I wasn't going to order any this year. Now I want Gay's Delight and Saturn's Rings. I need to quit hanging around with you folks. Jo is bad enough, but now Lynn!, and now probably Springcolor will post what she's getting. Geesh!

Alright, going to Rosy Dawn.
