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.

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.

Talking about Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides Kong™ Rose), Njiris wrote:

The Kong series of coleus is truly spectacular. The Kong Rose shown in my photo was growing in full sun in the spring. Unfortunately, as it heated up, the plant began to fade and melt. While some "sun coleuses" can thrive in full sun, the large-leaved Kong series performs best with more shade.

Solar Eclipse is a very prolific grower that tolerates full sun. Colors can get dark, but it also shows some excellent colors. Thrives both in the ground and in pots.
