~~Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.~~Humphry Davy
Every summer, I mixed this type of ornamental plant (Rainbow Coleus) in my flowers since I love the colors of its leaves, and since it can tolerate the heat very well.
When the plant was mature and the leaves were at their fullest, the flower stem began to grow very tall. I like different things mixed up with other summer flowers.
The flowers had a light lavender and delicate looking. They were beautiful and striking with those yellow rim on red leaves. Most flowers I had in this pot were short, and this beautiful plant brought a vertical view to the eyes.
