coleus out

The weather forecast looks good- no more dips below forty at least- so a few days ago when it was overcast and due to rain, I planted out a lot of coleus across the front yard bed. Select few went into pots for my deck. Just for fun, I planted the pots half with deeply-colored coleus and half with paler ones of the same type. To see which intensity of coloration they shift to when adjusted to their final space for the summer.
Some of the 'exhibition limelight' and 'rodeo drive' I still have in their first pots- haven't decided yet whether to put these in larger containers as well, or plant out in the landscape (which hasn't worked so well in the past, but maybe if I put them closer to the garden, I can keep a closer eye on them).
