I must say that if I had not seen this plant in person at a nursery I never would have purchased it. Coleus change colors under different conditions; and often photos of coleus posted on the internet fail to replicate the true colors of the leaves, but the pictures I've seen of this variety in particular fail to do it justice. It has the most interesting combination of pink on the mature leaves and orange on the new growth (among many others, of course) that defies description and apparently photography as well. This combination might sound odd, but several people stopped to comment on how pretty it was as I carried the plant to the register. I recommend trying this variety.
