Coleus barbatus, commonly known as Coleus forskohlii or Indian coleus, is a tropical perennial plant that is primarily grown for its medicinal properties and attractive foliage.

Coleus barbatus is relatively easy to cultivate, and it's often grown as an annual in cooler climates or as a perennial in warmer regions. In colder climates, Coleus barbatus can be grown as an annual or brought indoors before the first frost. It makes an excellent indoor plant if provided with adequate light and warmth during the winter.
