Gorgeous banner! Love all the colors together! Lovey dubby Hurray! Thumbs up

Do you know any of the varieties and could you post the photo you made the banner with?

@dave,

Tried to give 5 acorns at one time, but the system would only give Confused one at time, which I did five times. Maybe you already know this regarding acorns today, but just wanted to let you know.

@Marilyn,
You are too generous with the acorns, thank you. The names are: for the solid chartreuse coleus: Wasabi,
the solid red is Coleus Red Head, the multi red and greenish coleus is Indian Summer.

Thank you for the acorns.

Thumbs up Thumbs up four another wonderful banner, Fluer!

I've grown some Coleus before, but haven't in the last year or so. Guess I will need to fix that in some containers for my front porch landing.

Your thoughts and time is priceless; when you're giving moments of it to me, I feel honored. (Especially in this demanding Spring gardening time). Thank you for the thumbs up and acorns. I am pleased you enjoyed the
Coleus banner.
