Karen you grow beautiful coleus. Are those in full sun?
Do you amend your soil for them to retain water?

Lynn, those above are in part sun.

There are many sun tolerant coleus which do well for me in hot, humid Cinti. But if you want to grow them in full sun, be sure to purchase sun tolerant ones. These get hot sun all day
