The wife bought a Coleus or ' Painted Nettle " plant from the German garden centre and beer providers the other week.
So when she wasn't looking I made a few cutting and placed them in glasses of water and hoped they would strike roots. They did of course so I potted two of them up and we have now started a Coleus collection:
They are a bit mard and don't like frost but they can also be used for an annual in the garden borders or hanging baskets..?
I think I might be giving some house plants presents to people I know for Christmas!
