The colors in this one are the most vivid of the rust/orange coleus I have grown.

From 'The Floral Magazine', 1881:
"It is somewhat difficult for our artist to convey an adequate idea of the richness of colouring found in the leaves of some of the newer forms of the Coleus, as they are intermingled in a striking manner, and many of the hues are exceedingly rich. The splendid novelty now figured was raised at the Mile Ash Nurseries, Derby, by Mr. Edwin Cooling, who will distribute it in May next. The colour of the leaf is bright crimson, veined with darker crimson, and remarkably rich and velvety in appearance. The habit is very free and compact. We are informed by Mr. Cooling that he has tested the qualities of his new variety in the most thorough manner, by growing it by the side of all the best new varieties, and it was generally acknowledged to be the best of its class. As a pot-plant for the decoration of the greenhouse it is unequalled; and in warm situations bids fair to be a most useful and effective bedding plant. We have of late seen several fine new varieties of the Coleus, but that now figured appears to be one of the most distinct and promising."

Talking about Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides Henna), tabbycat wrote:

A neighbor here in zone 9 grew this as a 3' hedge across her house front. She gave me rooted cuttings she had in water ready to pot up. I put 3 in a 2-gallon chartreuse-green pot because it matched the color of the top side of the young leaves that were burgundy on the edge and underside. They grew well in a "morning sun only" spot on my patio. By fall the aging leaves got henna-gold colored on the top side. They got nipped on the tips by an unexpected frost, so I cut back to 6", putting the cuttings in water for new plants. From then on through winter I brought it into my garage when temps fell into the 30s. It survived and sprouted out beautifully in March and has grown to 30" again by June 10, 2018.

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.

Talking about Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides Stained Glassworks™ Burgundy Wedding Train), blue23rose wrote:

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.
