Ann's Hybrid "Real Horrorshow"

Ann’s Hybrid: Real Horrorshow

Update from 2015: This variety sure sports a lot, as I’ve noticed lots of variegated/mosaic types do. Reminds me of Fingerpaint, but a warmer color or “autumn” version of it. One thing I’ve observed about the sporting mosaic (Fingerpaint, Twist and Twirl, etc.) is that they will sport to a solid, but I haven’t noticed…

Raspberry Dazzle 2014

Ann’s Hybrid: Raspberry Dazzle

Update from 2015: The color seems a little off in these photos…maybe it was taken during the “golden hour” because this plant isn’t as orange. It’s more magenta-red.

This is one of the strangest ones. The leaves are sort of curly, with deep serrated…

Note how it is less brown and more magenta, especially the center which is very purple. That’s probably just the function of the iPhone camera. The actual…

Parentage could be one of the “Under the Sea” series, like Hermit or King Crab, or possibly Jupiter. Maybe Limon Blush too. Odd puffy texture. In the old…

Ann’s Hybrid Dwarves?

These are odd little coleus that started from seed in 2013, and even made flower heads over the winter (that I removed), but they are tiny! The largest leaves are about 1/2″ long. I don’t know if they are actual “dwarf” plants or just stunted for some reason and will grow to a normal size…
