I had a great order from RD last spring. They all thrived, and some of them are now 5' standards that I overwintered.

My order of 20 coleus arrived on my birthday as I planned ... what an awesome present to unwrap ! RD is amazing their packing technique is incredible... I cannot figure out how they can fold a large coleus like Mariposa into that little tube without breaking a single leaf. What a fun b'day every plant was just stunning and so easy to transplant. Now 2 days later they are all unfolded and look as if I have had them for weeks . Thank you

thank you weloveouryard, I wanted Brooklyn Horror so bad but decided to go with Black Lace. I'm not sorry it is gorgeous but I still want to get Brooklyn eventually :) Oh, and our temps have been crazy it was snowing when my coleus were delivered. Mt greenhouse is about to explode, I hate to keep cutting these beauties back it's like throwing jewelery away. Spring where are you ??????

Last year I got my order from Rosy Dawn end of March. Could not plant for three weeks because it was so cold. So this year I chose April 21st. Now we are in the 90s. Cannot win. LOL. Sharon.

YEA! I got my RD order today. They are beautiful. I'm sure glad it was a nice warm day today because I had to go out to a meeting and they were laying on the porch when I got back. I don't know how long they were there, it could have been hours! But no problem, as it was almost 70 degrees today! I knew they were coming and almost canceled my meeting to receive them, then I noticed a warm forcast. I'll have to keep them inside for several weeks of course, as today's nice weather was unusual and we could get a freeze again. I've got them all potted up now and they look good. I got mostly red ones, plus 'mariposa'.

Mine were waiting when I returned from a trip to NC and Va. I lost a few leaves as they were probably in the mailbox for 2 days, but they were cool days.
They all bounced back quickly.
I have an order coming from Gebharts this week also. I'll post pictures later.

Looks like the Coleous season is well under way. I have hundreds of little seedlings that have came up where I had Coleous last year. They are about an inch high now, all different colors, not sure what I will have!!!

Rene, I bet you get some good ones. They may look nothing like their parents. ;)

Oh wow, isn't that neat, that they'll come up from seed. I don't think that happens very often here in NJ. It must be really pretty living in FL with all the plants and flowers all year long.

I got the prettiest order from Gebhart's. My DC who's visiting had unwrapped them and they are even prettier than RDs.
I'll post pictures tomorrow.
