Well, I am almost ashamed to admit it, but I did end up with 81 coleus in my order. I really think that is the most I have ever ordered from them. I picked all that I liked and when I went back to delete some I kept thinking... Oh, my Mom loved that so much. So I decided that was good enough reason to keep all of them on my list. LOL

If you placed an order, please share with us.

Here's my list:

Brinda, that's the best reason I can think of.
I'm making a list of cutting request already.
I paid $800.+ for a new refrigerator, so RD had to wait.

Hi Allison! Nice list there. I'm curious about a few on your list. Have you ever grown Jack of Diamonds, Neon Rose, Ruby Laser or Screaming Raspberry? I'd love to know how those did for you if you have. And I'd love to see pics if you have them.

I had Jack of Diamonds last year and Neon (which is different but similar to Neon Rose I think). I liked both of them. I want to say JD was a large coleus with lots of reddish pink. Neon was medium with lots of bright deep pink.

Brin I had Jack of Diamonds. I liked that one a lot. The Screaming Raspberry I had never did well and bit the dust overwintering,.

I think I've heard great reviews about Jack of Diamonds. I should give it a try.

Patty, thanks for the pics. They look great.

And for some reason I think I might have had Screaming Raspberry before and maybe it didn't do well. Maybe that is why I'm not remembering it much.

Allison, you liked Ruby Laser?

Hi, everyone!

Brinda, just so you are prepared for them before they arrive. If in the ground, holes dug, especially.

I never did hear from them about my order that refused to register in their system, but maybe my email went into a spam folder.

I just wrote and invited Pam of Rosy Dawn to join us here in Cubits. I see a commercial caladium grower-guy has a cubit.

Cheers,

Melissa
