This year, we added a colorful coleus plant to our back porch.  It hangs from the side of the wall near our Buddha's Afro fern.  Yesterday, I noticed that it suddenly developed some spikes which are turning into light purple blooms.  Who Knew?  According to some garden websites, this is common.  Many people cut the blooms off so that the energy will be directed back to the colorful leaves.  If you let these spikes grow, they will produce seeds which you can use to grow more coleus. I can't bring myself to snip of the blooms so hopefully I will have a bag of seeds by summer's end. Belinda SpillmanAspen Lane Real EstateManaging Broker/Owner(303)
