coleus cuttings
while visiting a pricey nursery today, I spotted two
beautiful coleus - Rustic Orange and Sedona. I picked
the two bushiest and tallest and decided it is certainly
early enough to take cuttings. Which would be better -
rooting in water or with rootone in planting mix? I think
I can get at least 3 cuttings from each plant, maybe 4.

Coleus is really very easy to root. Four inch pots are good for this. Strip a 3-4 inch cutting to two sets of top leaves, and plunge into moistened potting mix. No rooting hormone is necessary. Keep out of direct sun until rooted.

Lucky you to find the coleus sedona. Let us know how the cuttings go! I hope next year to see it in the regular catalogs as seed not plants....
