"Coleus (Solenostemon scutellarioides) plants offer incredibly colorful foliage in a variety of attractive shapes and sizes. There are a large number of cultivars and these have an interesting history. Almost all gardeners in the world know the seed-propagated varieties of this plant and most garden books mention it shortly, but only a few gardeners are aware of the superb cutting varieties that exist."
