Have I lost my Coleus

Dear fellow gardeners,

I think I may have lost my plant to the frost we had the other day. 

The one one in question is in the photo, it has also flowered. As it was looking lighter in colour next to its vibrant friend I thought it may have caught the frost?

I will be overwintering the redder one. May well take flowered one indoors too but was curious hence the post. 

Thank you for any advice 🍂

    I would pot them up and take them indoors pretty quickly now. 
    Take a load of cuttings ... they strike well in water... and pot them up for plants next year. 
    Plants that have been overwintered never look as good in their subsequent years as they do in their first.
