Volunteer Rooting

All summer long, we've been
 blessed with
an abundance of glorious rain. 
 The Coleus,
have long ago outgrown 
their pots, some 
are over 4 feet tall.  
A few weeks back, I
began pinching off the tops 
that were going
to seed, tossing them beneath
 our yellow
flowering shrubs.  
My thoughts were
  they would become healthy 
natural mulch for the shrubs.

Imagine my surprise
to find the Coleus tops,
had voluntarily
began rooting themselves.

You can see from the photos just how
beautiful they are growing,
sheltered from the hot Florida sun.

So pretty....they have spread  all
in this area.  Love the yellows, greens
and reds together.

Glad you stopped by.  Have a sweet
ole' day.  Dee Dee
