Since I talk about them so bloody often it sounds like an obsession...
here are the basic SIX designs of coleus that I am maintining this
year - hereinafter referred to as "models":
4) Ruffley red model (dragon?) (2nd year) - a little showy, even though I hate the word showy! Last year it didn't do well in the cold basement, and I actually lost a few... I guess the hardiest ones survived, because it's having no problem this year.
6) Kong Pink speckly type model purchased last spring. Its leaves are wrinkly and it has a very bushy habit so I haven't been able to take any cuttings indoors... I just realized that tonight, so pulled one off to root on the windowsill. Hopefully I'll get two of these to plant out; probably not more...
Hopefully you can figure out which is which, or maybe I'll edit this post so the pics line up with my commentary. [I did!]
And I actually managed to get a few of today's windowsill "graduates" potted up - I'm doing them two to a pot now so that a) I don't run out
of space, and b) it'll be easier to hand them over for trades etc in the spring if I have spares.
Haven't done a count yet, but I'd imagine this brings us up over 40... not sure how I count the pots that have two in them yet: do they count as a single coleus or two??
Hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I do... though it's hard to imagine, as I really am droning on. ;-)
