I grew two Coleus 'Kingswood Torch' plants in 2007. One received full sun and was allowed to get tall and big, and the other one I gave morning sun only and kept it shorter and smaller. Both plants were in mixed containers. The plant that got full sun was in a 20 inch container and the morning sun only plant was in a 14 inch container. As I reflect on the two plants from 2007, I remembered liking the way the morning sun only plant looked. It has a richer and deeper color and I like it that way better than the full sun plant. I'd like to grow this one again, but give it only morning sun. It's a favorite of mine.
