Easy to propagate annuals: Coleus
It's probably that memory of my childhood that makes me feel that Coleus is an all time easiest plant to root - by simply sticking its cutting in water.
Although, I have to warn you that rooting in water produces quite brittle roots and careful planting is recommended.
But if you propagate as described in this post, Coleus is your almost guaranteed success.
With plenty of moisture, every plant will add a big splash of color to any proper space.
Coleus can grow 2 to 3 feet in height and width. not that different cultivars have different sun requirements.
