Thought I was all done buying coleus, but went to a new place today and ended up bring home 2 more along with the varigated salvia I saw last summer and liked so much. The coleus on the right is Peter Wonder, but the one on the left was just tagged as a suncoleus. Anyone recognize it? The second photo is a closer up view.

I been searching photos and the closest I seem to come is Elfers. I emailed Jo Ann to see what she thinks. One of her photos in the database looks close with the purple edge.

When I get home this morning, I'll take another photo of it. It has really changed from when I got it to now having been in full sun for almost 2 weeks.

Will post some shots when I get my camera cord replaced. Guess what? I found out I already have Elfers and they do look a lot alike. I should be able to compare them in a few weeks when they have both been in full sun the same amount of time.
