Canada Garden: Alabama Sunset

Alabama Sunset

My all-time favorite coleus, Alabama Sunset, has fallen out of favor with most garden centers.  The last time I found one was a couple of years ago when Lori and I shopped at one of her really nice garden centers in Lexington.  So this year, I went to the internet and found Color Farm, a great place to order your fav coleus.  And so now the debate is, do I try to overwinter? or just send a little e-mail to Color Farm next spring . . . Either way, I love having AS again.  

The iresine in the top left corner has obviously had too much sun.  It goes back to deep shade next year.
