Hello All!

My grandmother had a huge (but I was little) example of this plant, or something like it. I have been looking for a long time and have not been able to find it....I was in home depot and saw it in a cart, and the woman was just as stumped as I about what it was - it had no tag.

If anyone can help, that would be great! Thank you.
yay for people that like plants!! Hurray!

The first picture is of a Coleus; the second is a Begonia.

I agree, #1 appears to be a variety of Coleus (Coleus scutellarioides) We have many in the database with photos so you may be able to narrow down an exact match: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

#2 looks like Iron Cross Begonia (Begonia masoniana)
