Looks like it might be a trailing variety, but can’t remember. From 2005. Advertisements
I really miss this one. Look at that peach-colored leaf. You just can’t find these now.
I think my camera overemphasized magenta. I think this one is actually more russet, but I’m not positive. I think it might be a Tilt a Whirl? From 2005.
This might be a Mosaic Kong. Huge, huge leaves. From 2005.
Similar to Magilla or Perilla but with less white. Maybe it’s the same, who knows. From 2005.
A dark colored Kong with a lovely olive green border from 2005.
Oh, I sure wish I still had this one. Large leaves in Dark Magenta with a lighter rose border. Why don’t they grow/develop these anymore? From 2005.
Very unique color combo…peachy on the outside, olive green in the center. From 2005.
It is similar to Black Dragon, but the magenta/black color dynamic is reversed. It sure is striking. And like most of the crop from 2005, unreplacable.
This one looks like Alabama Sunset, sort of, with the bright chartreuse leaves that turn to magenta red. I did get an Alabama Sunset this year, but it’s a little splotchier looking.
Finding a White Kong is rare, but this one has green inside the white inside the green!. I sure wish I still had this one, but Kongs are notoriously hard to winter over, worse than regular Coleus. This is from 2005.
“Rosebud” was the sleigh from “Citizen Kane.” It is something from your past that you long for, but is long lost. This is my Rosebud Coleus. I have never been able to find anything close. The variegated Coleus on the market have such even splotching or “mosaic-ing.’ Rosebud was unique. The way the colors are…
