it does not like it lower than 55 degrees on the coldest night it lives in a
solarium here in the north .. takes up the whole window though it grows to 25 or so feet before it will bloom .and can get much longer ... be prepared to wait a few years from cutting to bloom ..... and have a lot of space .. I love it though got my first beans this year after 6 yeqr waiting.. other than temp it is an easy plant to grow
I've tried a few cuttings to see how well they do indoors before digging up the whole Coleus and bringing them inside. So far so good. The 1st week it didn't look as if it would survive but 2 weeks later, this is the result...What do you think? P.S. Here is how to overwinterize Coleus' - http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/flower/overw... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1...
This has small tear drop type leaves and grows pretty pink flowers that turns brown and fall off.
A few years ago, I began a garden partly due to boredom and the other because I loved looking at the gardens in Savannah, Ga. Anyhow, I just planted all types of flowers and shrubs and didn't document them so I never knew what was growing in my gardens when asked. Now, I take pictures of them and document their names. This is the final one in my garden that doesn't have a name. Could you please help me identify it? Thank you:-D
