#146 They called me Coleus scutellarioides, also known as Coleus saundersii, Coleus gibsonii, Coleus verschaffeltii, Coleus marshallii, Coleus gaudichaudii, Coleus dixii, and Coleus veitchii. I pay homage to the male botanists William Saunders, Verschaffelt (I couldn’t find his records), Humphry Marshall, Gaudichaud (I couldn’t find his records), Dix (I couldn’t find his records), Neil Gibson, Alexander Gibson, or William Hamilton Gibson, and Harry Veitch, John Gould Veitch, Peter Veitch, or Harry James Veitch. They first catalogued me in 1830.
