Consequently, is Coleus cold tolerant?
A coleus plant is hardy, able to survive in both a container indoors and in the soil outside. However, being a warm weather loving plant, it will not survive a harsh, cold winter. When the weather begins to turn cold you will need to take some precautions to ensure a healthy coleus in the spring.
Likewise, how do you keep coleus alive in the winter? The basic idea for overwintering coleus is to cut pieces off your coleus plant, root them, plant them in pots and keep them growing in a sunny window through winter until it's time to plant them outside in spring.
Secondly, how cold can impatiens tolerate?
Frost Tolerance The succulent stems and thin leaves of impatiens do not endure temperatures of 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Even with temperatures below 36 degrees, low elevations may collect frost and cause partial defoliation of impatiens.
Will coleus come back every year?
Outside USDA zones 9 through 11, coleus is a beautiful spring-through-fall annual. As a tropical plant, coleus can't bear a chill and will blacken and die once the weather dips much below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep your coleus looking beautiful through its growing season by pinching back the stem tips periodically.
