I think I got 7 of 8
Kevin from GA wrote on March 31, 2020

I got 2 packs of 40 seeds. I'm sure there were a few extra in each pack. I planted all the seeds. They are so tiny once they hit the soil you can't see them. As a result some landed on the edge of the pod. I got germination within a few days in my covered seed tray using a plant light 16 hours a day and undermat heater. Overall I got about 78 plants now so a very good percentage. I am not sure what to do with all of them now that I've potted each one in a 4.5 inch pot. probably give some to some friends. This is my first time planting anything so it was kind of exciting. I marked down a star because I don't know that I got all 8 varieties and the colors are not as intense as the photos shown. Overall pretty happy and would recommend to a friend.

Super easy to grow

The seeds are tiny, but are so easy to grow. I started them inside and they all sprouted quickly. The colors are very nice.

pretty seedlings

This is the first year I bought this mix. I got four different varieties in the seedlings. It was great fun waiting to see what they would be and all four varieties are very pretty. I did have a low germination rate which surprised me. I usually have very high rates with Park's. In general, however, I am very happy with the mix. Next time I will just plant two packages. I am planning on growing them in pots with the Black Dragon coleus. I think that will be a very nice combo.

Nice standard size coleus
Greg - Dallas from TX wrote on July 02, 2012

I planted spring 2011 and overwintered a couple of my favorites indoors and they're doing great in the garden and pots in 2012. These are not the giant size and consequently have a better shape to plant well spaced apart. I too failed to get the full spectrum of colors that another reviewer mentioned but intend to reorder as I tried a packet from a local garden center and it completely lacked variety of colors.

Love this product, but image is not accurate

I buy these seeds every two to three years. The vast majority sprout and I have so many seedlings I do not know what to do with them all (I only have an apartment balcony). The plants do well in partial shade to practically full shade. Indoors they even do well under the grow lamp which is practically full sun. I cut them back slightly each year and they come back for quite a number of years. I do not let them flower which takes energy away from the plants. I have many compliments for these plants. My only issue is that I never get all the color varieties pictured in the photo. I get dark red, dark pink edged in lime green, lime green with spots or streaks of red, medium pink centers with wide lime green border. Sometimes a yellow centered seedling sprouts but I have yet to have it grow to maturity. Therefore I have never seen the orange or black leaves with red centers that are in the photo. I will continue to buy this item, but do not count on orange, yellow, or black leaves.
