coleus

I think this plant, of which there are over 1400 named cultivars and comes in almost every color imaginable, deserves its' own forum. It's usually used as an annual, but is genetically a perennial although only those in Miami or like climates can grow it as such. It's not really considered a tropical since the leaves are usually smallish, fairly uncommon and unreliable as a house plant, and for some reason, it's rarely discussed on the foliage forum although the overall number of coleus discussions throughout the forums is high.

That other family of gardening forums, which once we were forbidden to mention, has a coleus discussion group.

Just wanted to repeat my request for a Coleus forum, please! Adenium, a genus of only 12 species and Heuchera, a genus of about 50 species have been given their own forums. Coleus is a much more versatile and widely-grown genus than these, absolutely worthy of its' own forum.

Thanks, Albert, I prefer to chat here.

A search of all GW forums for the term Adenium, the latest new forum, AFAIK, returns 49 pages. A search of the term Coleus returns 140 pages of results.

Why can't Coleus get the recognition it deserves, and has already earned?

Is there a process in place for determining the creation of a new forum? How many signatures would be needed on a petition?
