Coleus!

Just got back from Home Depot. They have Coleus! (I know there are more than a few of us out there who can't resist!)

I can. Especially after finding a site called Swallowtail Garden Seeds and seeing their collection of Coleus. While I am not really a big fan of Coleus myself, my mother loves plants with colorful foliage. I plan on getting a few of the mix packets for her and doing an entire bed of coleus in her yard. I just want to make sure the last frost is definitely the LAST frost before I plant them. It would be a shame to build a 7x7 bed, seed it and have them all frost-killed so I can yell, "Happy Birthday!" while standing in front of a bed of blackened stems and leaves. :)

LMAO! I couldn't resist, but you already know that about me from the other posts. I bought them so I can chop them up and root LOTS in time for Spring! But now I'm gonna go check that website. I'm gonna regret it, aren't I? I'm gonna spend money, aren't I? I betcha' I am.
