I really enjoyed how well Felix grew.
Post a photo of your best Coleus for 2008
Watermelon is my favorite! Lovely Juanita. Must get some pics and get back here.
Dale Freckles is beautiful. What a surprise. I wouldnt have picked that one but yours is gorgeous!
Me neither Dale. I could never make the topiary thing work.
Brinda, next time I will not use the singular 'coleus'. I will use the plural coleus'. I am sorry I can't edit the subject of the thread.
3 trailing coleus, the only positive ID I have is the one that is upper middle of the photo, it is Wedding Train, the one to the left from Baker's, the one to the right was an un-named plant (a sport if I remember correctly??)
I like the layered coleus pot, will have to try that next summer.
These plants are 5 months old, Jada Joy(?) and I were talking about how some growers use growth retardant chemicals to keep their plugs from growing (or more correctly over growing) out of their containers. I think these three are examples. They should be alot bigger after 5 months....
Top left, Eclipse, then clockwise, Stu Junior, bottom is Big Chief>
Rene your layered pot looks great but it's screaming for some of my trailers....
I like that bonfire Dale
Dale, that one with a lost tag is a beauty! i can't seem to keep tags on all of mine. Oh well i love them anyway! Lorine
One wish it has some India Frills on the other side also Green Olive & one that has a red center. You can't see them all they go all the way around. I keep turning the pot. Lorine
Dale have a question for you at Lowes they had coleus there with the stalk as big as your thumb. There was a peice on the floor that had been broke off I threw it in the cart. Put it in a pot and it is growing never have seen one with such thick stalk have you?
I have seen some like that too... two I have are not kongs... but the stalks are huge.. I decided to buy the clearance plants and attempt topiary with them... I will have to get the names tomorrow my grow lights are off already... but I think it's just a general name on both
one is green on light green and the other red on green
