Daytime temps have been in the 60's, whereas, nights drop in the 50's. We had a couple nights in the 40's.
I'd like to take cuttings from Coleus growing in the garden.
What temps causes Coleus to freeze? Thanks, Toni
Coleus are one of the first things I know of to succumb to frost, especially the tips, and they don't recover. We're supposed to get 38 degrees here Wed. nite. Frustrating since the 10-day shows 3 nights of questionable temps, then back to normal, around 45-50 for lows. Sheesh! Since there is no margin for error with coleus, I plan to get all of my cuts made and in the house by Wed to be safe. I don't know the exact temp where fatality occurs, so anything below 40 is the line I draw.
