Winterizing a Coleus

Zone 60169 | jsoderberg2 added on October 8, 2016 | Answered

This summer has been extremely warm so I've left it outside. But this morning it dropped suddenly to the high 30's and now it's looking a little limp. Was I too late? It's already up to 62° here so I'm sure the plant is getting confused.

    Coleus will be killed if the temperature goes below freezing, so you should bring the plant indoors now. Since the temperatures only reached the high 30s, and the plant doesn't look dead, it will probably be fine.
