My Combos for 2010

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

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.

Needless to say I dont photo the really bad ones. I think its been too cool and wet.

Here it's been too hot and too dry but the coleus are doing well.

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.
