Coleus scutellarioides (common coleus)


Wikipedia Abstract

Plectranthus scutellarioides, commonly known as coleus, is a species of flowering plant in the family Lamiaceae (the mint or deadnettle family), native to southeast Asia and Malaysia. Growing to 60–75 cm (24–30 in) tall and wide, it is a bushy, woody-based evergreen perennial, widely grown for its highly decorative variegated leaves. Another common name is painted nettle, reflecting its relationship of deadnettles which are in the same family. (True nettles and their close kin are in the Urticaceae.)
