Beautiful colors. I had three plants in a planter indoor years ago and they grew so easily but the new colors are fabulous. Do you have a good source for these. Great article also.

Hi Steph--Many thanks for your kind words. I try to select my coleus plants locally. I'm fortunate in that regard, since there are numerous garden centers and greenhouses within a 30-mile radius of where I live. If I can't find the variety I'm looking for, I'll order it online. Singing Springs Nursery was a fabulous online source, but unfortunately they've discontinued their mail order business ( Here are some current sources: You can check each one out on the DG Garden Watchdog ( and read what others have written about each source listed. Happy growing!--Larry☼
