I've been growing this coleus for a number of years and have forgotten the name. The center is bright green with splashes of cream or very light yellow. The rest if reddish purple fainting to a dark rose along the outer edge. At the tips of the leaves are small areas of cream.

It does indeed look like 'Cracklin Rosie': http://www.rosydawngardens.com/cracklin-rosie-287.html

We currently have no pictures in the database so I hope you will upload a couple of your photos: coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides 'Cracklin' Rosie')
