As you know I am disapointed in some of my eforts to hold coleus over for the winter. There are some planters that are doing better after 3 weeks,now that plants are filling out.
Two plants that wintered well
Felix and Lancelot Velvet Mocha.
These are the better specimens of planters.

I'm pretty happy with this planter. I lost the coleus to a late frost (even though I covered them!) and had to replant them, but they were worth it, I love the color.
