To be honest I am bedazzled by 1: the enormous flowers coming from just one pot and 2: the shape they took and I thought that it must have been because of cages. 1 is something possible with the right fertilisation and watering; but 2 seems out of question for me (if I were to do it myself) plus I haven't seen flowers in pots in this kind of arrangement.

In any case; I do not have words enough to say how marvellous your efforts came out to be. Thank you very much for sharing. Let's see I will try the same next year; hope you could help.

Great Coleus, Izhar. How do they survive the winter & keep so healthy in Karachi-they don't up North ?

Sir, they die in summers here... our winters are negligible so they like the cool nights...
