The Black Dragon has large, red leaves with curled and serrated black-purple edges. The Coleus has nice dense foliage with a mounding, upright habit. Coleus prefers the shade, but can handle the heat if in partial shade to shade. It is a favorite with landscapers and homeowners. Foliage is a great accent to all shade gardens and landscape.
