Solenostemon scutellarioides, Coleus Miyana, ati-ati, jawer kotok, koleus

Native to Southeast Asia, this bushy, fast-growing perennial is grown as an annual in more temperate climates.
The leaves are a bright mixture of pink, green, red or yellow and are a pointed, oval shape with serrated edges. It grows 24 in (60 cm) high with a spread of 12 in (30 cm).
Cultivation: These frost-tender plants are easily grown in milder climates with adequate summer moisture and protection from hot sun.
They prefer humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil and need to be pinched back to promote bushiness.
Propagate from seed or cuttings.
