We have had some frost which has damaged or killed many of my collection of 31 but several stand out and will winter over. They are Henna, New Orleans, India Frills, Inky Fingers and Wasabi. Henna and Wasabi are not shown except as a the center leaf 2nd from left on the white panel. I understand one has to grow each plant in their garden to make selections but I was curious if other gardeners would share their choices of best Coleus in winter conditions in their garden.

Up north we either hope we have room for them indoors or replace in the spring. We hope the cuttings we took in the fall will keep. It has been a tough winter for indoor plants and me. Spring cannot come soon enough.
