Wow Janice, I have no idea! I always cut my flowers off cuz I don't really think they look attractive and it also stunts the plants growth also my zone is to cold to leave them out in winter so I'm sorry I don't know this!🤦‍♀️💘😍

I also always pinch mine back for bushier plants, but save the eensy weensy seeds to (try) to grow each spring... no luck yet! 🥴

I think I saw someone on here say theirs self seed. Someone in a warm climate. They may not seed true to the plant. I always let mine flower! The bees ravage them! They absolutely love them. Yay you Janice! I'm curious if it will now 🌱💗

You four sweet ladies always have my back - a fierce foursome you are!!!! 🤗🤗🤗🤗 That is ok, Shelley, as a group, you all always know! Kari, we shall keep hoping yours will grow. 👍 Laura, I thought I read that too from someone. My bees are too busy on the lavender. Cyndi, I did pinch off the first blooms 🤯, but she really wants to flower. I am glad you told me all this good info. 🤓 @ShelleySnyder @KariSamuel @columbiariver @cyndi 💗

I affectionately attribute my very colorful #Coleus to @ShelleySnyder. I always tried to grow them in the shade for some unknown reason and ⚰️. Shelley said, 'Sun' and boom! Gorgeous!! Thank you Shelley!🤗💗💗💗 #foliage #southerncalifornia 7 August 2020 😷

Kongs are a coleus that can only take shade Janice, red kong, orange Kong, pink Kong, and a few others I can't think of, they usually get very large leaves hence the name of the first one, king Kong, you should look them up Janice they are really cool!!💘😍

It very well could have been a repeated visiting grasshopper, as I have seen them shooting past periodically. @columbiariver @cyndi
