Lorraine, go to this website http://www.coleusfinder.org/pictures.php. They have a cool tool for finding coleus varieties based on their characteristics (leaf shape, color, height, etc...)

I hunt high & low for this one, the leaves are so large they called it Kong coleus, but I found the name & then misplaced it. The best one I ever grew was indoors in southwest corner windows with a giant rose shrub in front. No direct sun, it doesn't like UV rays I'm guessing.
