When I am visiting gardens around town, there are times…delightful times…when a splash of color grabs my attention. Such a time occurred last summer when I was touring the Billinda Daylily Garden here in Charlotte.
This purple annual coleus is eye-popping. I don’t know its name, but I see it around town, most frequently in annual plantings at the entrances to various neighborhoods.
I have normally planted annuals in pots, including several colorful varieties of sun coleus. This example gives me good reason to continue looking for them.
