coleus 'redhead'................

sunlicious(4)August 3, 2012

wow. this has become one of my favorite coleus!!! i can't believe how it has taken the heat and sun of this summer! i have it in a very large container with sweet potato vine 'blackie', papyrus 'king tut', and a supertunia.

i know 'redhead' is suppose to take more sun, but, i am still amazed! chances are pretty good i will be looking for these again next year.

How about some pics? I looked it up, and it's really nice. Heat of summer? I'm in Texas, and we have that heat for months, and fall and spring can be very mild, too. Coleus hold up just fine through all of that. They're tougher than they look.

well, the upper midwest did do one of their best impressions of "summer in arizona" this year. everyone will start to see the results in the markets soon, if they haven't already. corn looks awful tough---bushel count will be low.

i am new to the computer/smartphone tech, but, will try and post a pic.

good on you. i havent had any success in germination. how do you do it? i broadcast mine on moist soilless mix just on top (i dont press it or cover with soil after), i cover with clear plastic and expose to some light not direct though but nothing.

any advice????
