The Mighty Coleus

Coleus is one of those plants that can be just a little splash of color or pattern in a garden, or can be grown to create an enormous design feature. I took some photos of Coleus growing in a window box and in a planter a few weeks ago in Downtown Frederick and these examples show how mighty the coleus can be.  The final few were taken a few years ago and show the green thumbs of local sidewalk gardeners.
