I didn't know what it was as I didn't notice "coleus" just above your photo and I certainly have never heard of solenostthingymejig! I've never seen one like this it doesn't look real does it?

Wow that is so stunning!

Oh wow. That looks great! Very unusual and pretty :)

Bornagain - it is real. It's my monster of a coleus - I love it as it makes such an lovely impact in my courtyard garden.

Thanks Irish, Pansypotter and Jamiemclean - this coleus catches everyone's attention when they visit. I'm also giving away lots of cuttings from this beast.

WOW....never see anything like this, absolutely fantastic. Wish I lived closer, I'd be knocking on your door for one of those cuttings!

Thanks Junglejen - yes it's a shame I can't share it with you as this one is such a beauty.
