Coleus blumei is native to tropical Asia and Africa, but I found it in the Sofia Botanical garden of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. They say it is a psychoactive plant. You can read in the Wikipedia that "Coleus is generally made into a tea, smoked or chewed as a quid for psychoactive effects". I think its colors suggest it...

Hi Anton,
I believe there are so many species of Coleus, and this one looks very interesting in colors and leaf shape. Nice close up shot.
