|Earlier this year, Lowes was selling trays of small unknown coleus plants, 6 / tray. I believe they were supplied by Metrolina Greenhouse to Lowes. I purchased several. One plant in particular has really impressed. Photo uploaded. Does anyone know anything about this plant? Is it from a particular seedling series ... Or is it possibly a named cultivar? Any help appreciated. |

|@Njiris, it is possibly one of the Kong varieties.|

|This is not exact but close and the difference in the growing conditions might account for the lighter red. |

|Sorry, not Beckwiths Gem. The unknown plant is too red .|
Coleus (Plectranthus scutellarioides 'Beckwith's Gem')

|Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, this one did not make it through the winter indoors. Lost about 20% of the cuttings I brought inside. |
They grow too fast (in spite of being pinched back) and the more aggressive growers block out the light.
Have made new cuttings, got rid of the older plants and am waiting a few more days for nights to warm up before slowly moving things outside.
