Variagated penta and red sun coleus

I love this color combo! The red blooms of the penta are brought forward by the red leaves of the coleus. I also used red impatiens in this bed and the effect was good. I've had a difficult time finding this penta. Growers tell me it is hard to produce. I've seen the name "Stars and Stripes" before and have also seen unnamed selections. Last year I found them at Cold Creek Nursery and Singing Springs Nursery, but I notice that they are not offered this year by Singing Springs at all. The red coleus doesn't have a name that I know of. I found it about 8 or 9 years ago at a local shop and have carried it over every year since. I love the fact that it blooms very, very late in the season, has a good growth habit. and stays neat and disease free.
