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 🌱💗

I let my bush out first by pinching out the first few buds then let it flower and go to seed. I save some and let the rest do whatever happens naturally. If you find them where you don't want them easy to lift and transplant as well

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
