Ross Bridge Plant ID

auhort1990(8a)August 4, 2008

This is going to be very vague but I might get lucky. The wife and I spent the weekend at Ross Bridge. While there I noticed a plant in some of the annual beds in front. From a distance it looked like coleus but when I got closer I could tell it wasn't. The leaves were alot more widely serrated than coleus and it looked like the leaves kind of wrapped around the main stem. I really wish we would have had our camers. Anyone care to guess at what this might have been?

When all else fails call your grower. Its Acalypha wilkesiana 'Ceylon'.
