Coleus was a genus plants in the Lamiaceae family. In the new taxonomy the genus is no longer recognized.
In Mazatec folk taxonomy, Salvia divinorum is called la hembra (means in Spanish the mother) , Coleus pumila is called "el macho" (means the father), and Coleus blumei is called both "el nene" (the child) and "el ahijado" (the godchild).  The active compounds of coleus plants are unknown.
