We need more coleus in the database- photos, comments, details- we need it all. This could be a great resource in the future, but we have to make it that way. Some of you have such great information and photos to share. Did you see Dave's thread about database entries in the past week?
The thread "A report for the last week's activity in the database" in Plant Database forum

I really like how the newest photos are displayed on the forum pages.

Me too, Allison. I've added pretty many photos but I'm a pretty rotten photographer. Or maybe a not so good gardener Hilarious!

I've seen some of your pretty photos there, Allison. But lots of coleus still have no pictures.

Same here. I was thrilled with the Coleuses (Colei?) I grew this year, but none of them came with names...

Cool. Thumbs up

It could be a nice reference in the future, especially when we're coleus shopping for spring. It's always nice to see photos grown by real gardeners, read their comments about a particular cultivar, etc.

Lee Anne, your bright green one, second from left, looks like Electric Lime.

Quite a few of mine have developed into sports, mutated from the original colors. I skipped those too. I only added ones that still looked the same as when I bought it.
