Mint Vietnamese

Price: $ 6.50

Persicaria odorata
Also known as Vietnamese Coriander, and actually unrelated to mint but similar in growth habit.  Attractive plant with burgundy red markings on the green pointed leaves. Used in Asian cooking in soups, stews, spring rolls, salads and Laksa.  Perennial but slightly frost tender.  Also tends to run, so good to keep in a pot and provide protection in winter.  Flowers in warm areas.
