Purple thingy!

N E Somerset, United Kingdom

I was given 2 of these plants, when I asked what they were called I was told 'purple thingys'! I'm afraid this is not a satisfactory answer for me, can anyone help??



Could this be a very large/tall Heuchera 'Plum Pudding', cannot quite see the foliage. Has it had any flowers at all? Regards Cheryl

It could be a Coleus (now known as Solenostemon). If so, it's not hardy but you can take cuttings to overwinter indoors. Take small lengths of shoots and put in a jar of water until roots appear, then pot on.
