Spring order :)

Jupiter, FL

Got my coleus today for Rosy Dawn ! They are big and beautiful . I put them in 4 in pots and gave them a quick hose down. Will take a pic tomorrow after I pot them up . :)

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

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Love RD's plants

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

Happy b-day dragonman..... I just planted mine up and gave them a drink. Will take pictures when they are nice and perky. I got Brooklyn horror , Red sheild and Laser red for
my bonus.The high Temps have been in the lower 80 and the low been in the lower 60 so I will be taking these out in the AM and bringing them in at night for a few days.

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.

We are due for a colder spring and dryer summer.
My order is due May 31

Mount Laurel, NJ

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'.

Very nice! Mine will come around May 15. Ordered with a friend, each of us got 10.

They look great.

Okeechobee, FL(Zone 10a)

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!!!

(Arlene) Southold, NY(Zone 7a)

How exciting! Please post photos as they grow!

Okeechobee, FL(Zone 10a)

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

Pittsford, NY(Zone 6a)

Yes photos please.

Mount Laurel, NJ

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.

Wauchula, FL(Zone 9b)

Yes it is Coleouslover, I am a Fl. native. Traveled extensively over the US wouldn't live any where else!!!

Las Vegas, NV(Zone 9a)

I have been to Florida. You have really BIG bugs. LOL. Sharon, Las Vegas....

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.
