Or is it Solenostemon scutellarioides, or Coleus blumei? Those terms are considered to be the previous names for Coleus. Latin/Scientific names for Plantae are always evolving. The Latin/Scientific method (genus and species system) of naming plants was developed by famed Swedish botanist, Carolus Linnaeus.
