This plant looks and acts very similar to a sun loving Coleus variety. Magilla perilla is an attractive, easy-to-grow ornamental valued for its exotic looking hot pink, deep burgundy, almost purple, and green variegated foliage which can vary in color by how much light and heat it receives. It has a tall, bushy habit and produces inconspicuous spikes of white flowers that should be removed because they detract from the plant's overall appearance. It is a low maintenance plant, though pinching it back gives in a neater, denser appearance. Add 'Magilla' to mixed borders among other showy, sun-loving annuals and perennials. It also works well in large containers. This plant is remarkably heat and humidity tolerant.
