|Solenostemon 'Strawberry Drop'|
I planted a great deal of 'Strawberry Drop' this year. Along with 'Alligator Tears', it was one of the few coleus that I grew during the winter that wasn't decimated by mealy bugs in early spring. When it came time to plant outside, I must have had 75 to 100 starts. In the backyard, it spills over the edge of retaining walls, mixes beautifully with Lantana and Phlox, and looks right at home alongside ornamental grasses.
