FireFlower 3

This may be the third post of an image entitled FireFlower. Each one is a different species, but the title comes from the sunlight radiated by the plant. In this case, the magenta in these leaves is actually translucent, letting light in from behind as well as reflecting light on the surface of the leaves. Betcha can’t guess this plant. Coleus is the easy guess, but it’s not a coleus.

FireFlower 3 - Magilla Perilla, a member of the mint family.
