    Are you sure it’s a perennial in Virginia? Coleus are tropical plants. Did you bring it inside last winter? http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/37847/#b

    It originated as a clipping from a plant in PA. It did suffer terribly after being left out overnight in 50 degree weather 2 days ago. Thanks
