Easy to propogate Coleus

Posted: 16/08/2017 at 07:16

Thanks Chrissy and Jacquim, I am going to give them a try overwinter but I will definitely be buying them again next year and like you Chrissy, will take cuttings to increase the numbers for the pots. 

Very tall flowers, could you name them please.

Thanks Will, Busy-Lizzie and Bob. I've looked at  H. 'Riverton Beauty'  and they couldn't be more of a match. I will move them further back in the border next spring as the lower third of the stems is unsightly so needs to be planted behind other plants.  I shall definitely give them the 'Chelsea chop' next year. Thankyou all again.

I bought some very cheap Coleus plants at the start of summer and they grew like billy-o. I knocked a couple of stems off while moving them and stood them in a glass of water to enjoy  the leaf colours indoors. We went away for a week and when we returned the stems has filled the bottom of the glass with roots. I've never known such easy cuttings material...s

Thanks Grannybee, I thought that but the height of them threw me.

I planted these in the garden last year and they only grew to around 2ft. This year they are about 5 ft tall. I can't find the label.

Are these Heliopsis or Helianthus

After all this comparing I am going to plump for Helianthus. Unless you know different !!!!

I took some better photos this morning...They were a gift from someone's garden, many years ago.

It looks to me like the Heliopsis have darker stems than the ones I have. They must be Helianthus. 🤔

Are these Leucanthemum.

Thankyou. All the ones I looked at had either shaggy petals or had stouter looking flowers.

I am not sure even after looking at photos of each on line. They are very tall, 5ft, self supporting on wiry stems. The flowers are about 3 inches across and a rich yellow.They spread readily by root growth.
