Since things are slow I have taken it upon myself to run this one to the end of the month....
Coleus Chatters thru July 31st
Jingles is becoming a favorite. Notice the three leaves? They all seem to want to do that. My coleus are finally looking up. At least some of them are. They are way behind where they usually are by this time. Strange weather for sure. Monsoon season stopped abruptly and now everything is burning up.
I've got a buch of those-called "limelight"-
I think Dale had some and I believe he called them electric lime---
that looks like my electric lime from Dale-
a great grower- i haven't pinched at all and it's branched nicely, and has had geat growth compared to all my other coleus that started the same size when transplanted...
hope you're enjoying it too:)
Thanks Joy and Dale. They both have grown into very nice plants.
At the time it didn't matter what the name was, but good to know if I ever send cuttings to anyone.
I'm lovin' my Electric Lime from Dale too. Bright, in your face kind of green. It's a keeper.
Rvnsbrk I did notice the 3 leaves.. pretty cool looking... slow here this year as well
Gorgeous containers, kiddo. That Electric Lime really is stunning. Guess I'll have to bum a cutting in the fall. :-)
Thanks Arlene and Mom,
That's actually an oil lamp Arlene. I think I got it from Gardeners Supply or something like that. Light it sometimes to keep the bugs away.
Any luck on the "search" yet??
I gotta make a note of that. That lamp is beautiful but will have to go on my "Wish List".
Nah... filling out lots of apps online and sending resumes but no luck yet. I am sure something will show up eventually.
Juanita, how fun - your mom is here too! I didn't know.
You're posting such wonderful photos of healthy and happy coleus.
I have to admit, that cute 'Trailing Psycholeus' I have never heard of before, very interesting with new coleus aquintences (how d'ya spell that word....:-))
Yes I talked my Mom into joining Dave's Garden. Trying to keep some of the addictions in the family. :0)
Trailing Psycholeus was a freebie I got last year from RD. It is vigorous to say the least. Doesn't really trail, just kind of leans over.
Hi Alice. I am mostly a lurker, not a chatter, but I feel as if I know you, just from the lurking. :-) Same goes for all you ladies.
Took these this morning. I don't think I even told my Mom about this container. I just finished making my dining room into an office and I wanted something to look at from the windows in there. Got this big watering tub from Tractor Supply. It was damaged and wouldn't hold water, but works great for me. I painted it and then threw in some cool caladiums I got and lots of double impatiens which are becoming my favs.
Hey, Juanita, I love the watering tub arrangement. I knew it was in the works but forgot to check on the finished project. I think I'll have to change offices with you--all I see is a wall! :-)
Juanita, I agree with you, they look exactly the same .... how can Proven Winners sell two identical plants? (well, maybe one becomes more yellow than the other later in season, so there MAY be a small difference, but it is hard to spot any difference now.)
I hope you will post photos of them later in season, it will be interesting to see if they still are identical....
Gosh so many pretty ones! Do you believe I have not potted my coleus up yet? I have them all over but not in their fancy ceramic pots and few combos so far. I seem to be moving in slow motion. I am so late and I have no excuse except its me.
Gosh a 5 year old coleus. That is amazing. I see they have shade cloth over their backyard. Must get so hot there.
Kell so good to see you!! Miss everyone here. It has been way too quiet without Brinda. We gotta fix that! Everything is moving slow here too Kell. Mostly me. :0)
Thanks Juanita. Poor Brin is so worried about her Mom who has moved back into Brin's house. She is not doing well. Brinda is so worried about her.
I have never seen Red Planet before. Such great color.
