Adjustments Per Climate
Coleus is technically a tender perennial and not cold hardy in much of the country, so many gardeners simply grow it as an annual. But even in wintry climes, you can keep favorite plants going by taking cuttings in early fall to propagate indoors. When the weather warms, they'll be ready to hit the garden once more, dressed in their summer best.
