jadajoy Newport News, VA (Zone 11) Thanks! I found the history fascinating too. Coleus addiction goes waaay back. We're just newbies to the club, Ha!
cactuspatch Alamogordo, NM (Zone 7b) Great article, I have been a gardener for over 30 years but just in the last few years have started growing coleus. I love to plant them on my porch for the summer and then root cuttings in the fall to enjoy them as houseplants like you mentioned.
We have a lot in common, I am a cat lover, quilter, gardener and my name is Joyce too! : )
