One potted plant in my garden that demands a bit more water is this pass-along Coleus from Robin at Getting Grounded. I was able to over-winter the plant and it is now back to its former glory. I love the combination of green and maroon splashed about throughout its foliage.
The colors blend together and no two leafs show the same pattern. Though green and maroon are the primary colors, their combination leads to additional flavors of pink and beige.
As the sun sets, it peeks through the upper canopy and highlights the Coleus from behind, lighting up the maroon undersides of the upturned leaves.
I'm unsure as to the variety name of the plant, but it has certainly been a star performer in my garden.
