The color differences on this one are due, I think, to the amount of water and light it gets. The dark purple one was dry and in medium light. The more red one was wet and in shade.

This plant is excellent in a large pot and the chartreuse edge goes well with creeping Jenny. I had it in a 12" pot, but it should have been in a larger pot. The leaves are 1" or less making it a nice plant for a fairy garden, but would probably need to be trimmed back to keep it in check. It gets about 12-18" tall and 2 feet wide and is a trailing plant. It would be great in a hanging basket. Does well in sun or shade, but the colors are more intense in the shade. It is an annual in my zone 6b.

Talking about Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides 'Pele'), NHJenDion wrote:

Pele tends to sunburn and 'bleach out' in full sun (especially hot afternoon sun), but thrives in dappled shade. If it's given full shade or weak sun (as in cuttings that are overwintered), it will lose its "blood spatter" coloring, but it returns once the plant is placed back in some sun. This is one of the few coleuses that I repeatedly overwinter.

Water after planting. Keep the soil moist until new growth appears. After the plant is established, water when the top 1" of soil is dry.
Fertilize once a month with 12-6-6 fertilizer.
If you bring it in for winter, discontinue fertilizing until the next growing season.

Talking about Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides 'Black Dragon'), lovesblooms wrote:

There is no coleus like Black Dragon. I just love it. I let mine grow three feet tall and two feet wide this year. Seed I planted was saved seed, so there was variegation in the seedlings, but only in the magenta stripe: some of the seedlings showed it more prominently than others. I saved seed from the biggest and darkest.
