This is a coleus...I bought a plant 4 years ago and I have been able to root new pieces every year. I love this one. It can take a lot more sun than the other varieties. This is called "Electric Lime".
This is a little vignette under the cherry tree over on the corner of my lot. Notice the hosta in the pot on the left. I have overwintered lots of hostas in pots simply by placing them all together and covering them with leaves. They come back every Spring. I am in Zone 5.
These are "Red Hot Pokers"--Tritoma...
And here is the "Hot Papaya" Coneflower as it has matured. I love it. The color is a brilliant orange. The picture doesn't do it justice. These are just a few of my favorites.....there are more to come--stay tuned and come back soon.
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
