I have a Coleus plant I just bought from a flower shop, Unfortunately, the owner did not know the name. I am asking for help in identifying it. I have looked all over google, and nothing, itโ€™s really bothering me because itโ€™s such a beautiful specimen. I have added the picture along with this post.

It doesn't look like coleus to me either.

I'd say it's a Pilea.

This one looks like a match, popular plant.

Patrics welcome to ATP. There is always someone who can help here.
I thought the bloom looked suspicious.
Thanks for the id.
