I like the red veins on the gold leaves, too, Janette.

I was wondering, too, Sk. Quick search has produced a book, first published 1974 - "Colues: A Guide to cultivation and identification" by WK (Kenneth) Pedley and R (Roy) Pedley - available on Amazon. Presumably, he is a coleus expert?

Ken and Roy Pedley were 2 brothers who had a coleus nursery based in Newton With Scales nr Kirkham Lancashire. They were both very active in supporting St Michaels Chuch in Kirkham. Roy used to run the Senior Youth Club - often taking us out on day trips to the Yorkshire Dales in his van and always at his own expense. As well as being a great gardener he was a real gentleman, One of life's best.RIP
