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.
