coleus report

I have lots and lots of pink coleus this year. The ones in the front yard aren't doing quite as nicely as those on the side under a tree, I think they prefer at least partial shade...
Last years' rootstock that I overwintered is actually looking decent
I have just moved the two of those up to bigger pots.
The lime-and-orange one (although color seems to change, looks more yellow-and-red now) I took cuttings of several weeks ago-
It's amazing how fast the root hairs show up- within a few days.
Those are potted up now too, and soon will go out into the yard. This one looks a lot more striking from streetside than the pinks, with its large leaves and bold color, so I think it's going to be a nice filler for blank spots in the front.
