PlantTherapy: Hot or Not?

Of all the flower boxes I have seen this summer this had to be the brightest and most vibrant, not to mention there must be at least 40 linear feet of plants! Lots of people stop to stare when they walk by, but I wonder if they like it or think it's over the top...

It's a mix of croton, begonias, ferns, coleus, and blue pansies. To my eyes it looks like someone planted a pack of Gummi Bears and they sprouted. It is lush and dense, a clash of saturated colors. To look at the schoolchildren's eyes when they pass you can see it provokes their imaginations and dares them not to touch. Personally it's not for me (I am a big fan of some of these plants, but not all), but it still was exciting to see.
