Coleus usually will not make it through the winter on the Gulf Coast.

By rooting cuttings at the end of the season and bringing them inside for the winter, they will be ready to go at the first sign of warm weather.

In the Automatic Garden the Coleus are also left to go to seed in the fall and will emerge later in the summer.

Even more can be started by trimming back the bigger ones and rooting them in moist soil.
