Britton Shiso

Perilla frutescens

Attractive leaves with earthy, aromatic flavor.

Make your edible landscaping pop with this stunning two-toned shiso, also known as “perilla.” The deep green leaves have dusky burgundy undersides and an earthy-yet-aromatic flavor reminiscent of star anise, mint, and even cumin. Shiso features prominently in many Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines; its versatile flavor profile means it can be used in both savory and sweet dishes–from pickles to desserts. Bushy habit, as beautiful as a decorative coleus.
