Hello! I am a coleus collector from Taipei（Taiwan）, having cultivated coleus from seeds for many years. After reading some threads on this forum, I decide to join your group to get more information about Coleus. In Taiwan, we donít have the problem of overwintering, yet only a few people can keep collecting coleus for a long time; probably because we donít have large and professional coleus suppliers like yours. Therefore I am starting to place orders to Rosy Dawn, and trying to make friends with all of you. I believe that I can learn more from you in this forum.
I have already built this thread about coleus in Taiwan, which some of you might be interested: http://forums.plant-seeds.idv.tw//showthread.php?t=95072
Of course our collection cannot match yours, most of these coleus are propagated from seeds because they tend to grow like the Rainbows series in Taiwan, and only a few can be identified as the cutting-grown products that you are using. It is truly difficult for us to import new coleus overseas to our place.
The climate in Taiwan is warm and humid, there are only two or three weeks of lowest temperatures from 37℉ to 42℉ in Taipei, and it rains frequently , so our coleus may be kept outdoors in winter days.
