I've never seen one so colorful.


Your thread is inspiring me to sow some coleus seeds, Gardennerd!

I just finished sowing some now!


Do you want me to show my seedlings here in your thread when they come up, Gardennerd?

Thumbs upAlright, I will!


Sowed seeds from a packet called brilliant mix. It'll be neat to see what colors I end up with.


Trying to locate a picture of a seed-grown coleus that I grew in the garden a couple years ago. I'll post it when I find it in my gazillion albums on photobucket.

Ok to the far right of the picture, you can see a seed-grown coleus I grew in the garden a couple years back...






If you pinch the flowers off when they appear, you can prolong the colorful foliage show well into fall.


P.S. That's my seed-grown "black velvet rose" geranium and the leaves of my Orinoco banana plant to the left of the shot, to satisfy curiosity.
