ge, Very nice plantings in your containers. I planted a couple of small coleus in containers under a bird feeder, not thinking about scattered bird seed. So the coleus got scratched out. I have more coleus so will carefully replant.
I really like the dark foliage plants. OUr nights are very cool, so coleus doesn't do well if put out too early, like even now.
I do a lot of containers in my back yard and have a little group with merlot coloured flowers with some dark foliage. It faces SE so it get very hot and has full sun until late afternoon. I picked up a dark leafed dahlia call Dark Angels Dracula. Can't wait until we get some sunshine. Not a great picture of the group, but in a couple of weeks it should be spectacular
