Hi all. I'm new to Dave's Garden, and also to coleus, which I've fallen madly in love with!
The picture below is of a coleus I planted last year, and was purchased at the local ARC Gateway nursery in my town. They were not sure what the variety was, and they only had this one single plant. I tried to take some cuttings to keep inside over the winter, but I unfortunately lost them. :-(
Anybody have any ideas? I'm specifically talking about the ones with the giant leaves lined in lime green, although if you know what the other one is, I'd love to know as well. I thought it might be Saturn.
I'd be thankful for any info anyone could provide!
It's likely you wouldn't get them in a mix. Next time you're out looking at coleus ask the nice nursery owner if he or she will let you have a Kong cutting. Most of them don't mind. It encourages customers to return.
Just wanted to share the picture attached. I went out to clean out the pot that held my dead coleus that I now know was likely a Kong variety. I was elated to see that she survived the winter and is putting out new growth!
Now I'll finally have the chance to keep her going by taking cuttings! What a wonderful spring surprise!
