Butter Creme maybe?

On my plant, new fresh leaves have yellowish centers. Older leaves are lighter, whiter in the center.

Thanks Karen,

My leaves are more oval than scalloped I think, Am going to look at a few more pictures.

Center is a bit more gold than this shows but some of the leaves look almost all cream

Wow, who would have thought there were so many with different names but similar characteristics.

I love them all.. am now thinking that instead of trying to grow blooming plants in a low light situation, I should do Coleus.

The Versa Halo is good in shade... Hurray! Hurray!

I'm so glad you found that tag! There are over 2,000 named Coleus cultivars, and they make a ton of new ones every year. Really cool, but dangerous for the obsession-susceptible. I also like knowing the names of my plants, but am trying to get over that, especially for Coleus, because it just doesn't matter and clogs up my brain. I don't think I'll accidentally buy the same thing twice and if I do, I deserve it 'cuz obviously I really like it and some part of me knows the yard needs MORE! But who was taking macro pics of the labels last week "to get the names right?" Oh well, the first step is admitting you have a problem...

If you were still wondering what to call it, I was going to suggest Kermit.

Love the "Coleus Jade." Tag on this said "Florida Sun Jade."
