Hardiness of Coleus vs. Marigolds.
I have a huge raised planter in my front yard. It gets direct sun all day--no shade. I have spring bulbs planted there and after they have finished blooming I plant marigolds and dusty miller. These flowers last until late fall and look great as long as I remember to water during dry spells. I do deadhead the marigolds. I am thinking of planting heavily with coleus this year, just for a change. I know I have to water and pinch coleus. I live in a high wind area--does this matter?
