What do your winter saved plants or cuttings look like?

I have a few individuals in pots, and these cuttings. Some had better light than others over winter, and there were a few close calls of letting a couple dry & the plants started to wilt. Anyway, from these, I'll have TONS of Coleus plants in the landscape.

Already started some new cuttings-from-cuttings here:

I hope to find some new ones to add to my collection this spring.

I have stuck most of the winter-saved plants in the ground, in mixed clumps just like they were when in the jars. These clumps will be the "mother lodes" for taking tons of cuttings this year. I have already snipped the first batch of this year's cuttings from them.

The tiny side stems that were going to be lost under soil got stuck here. Most have been here 2-4 weeks, so they must have decided to take root. They would have fried in the heat this past week if not. I've never done cuttings this small before, but I thought, why not try? It's an old grill, the legs rusted off.
