Coleus Playing Peek-A-Boo With A Foxtail Fern

I am turned on by the contrasts of shapes, colors, and textures of leaf combinations. This huge old Foxtail Fern is like a mother hen with chicks of coleus all around her.

What a lovely fern...I can see why it has its common name. Coleus are a fabulous plant with so many different leaf colours and easy to propergate by seed or cuttings..just as well as they aren't hardy here in the UK. Can you leave them outside during your winters?
