Perilla Bi-color/Shiso (Perilla frutescens)

Organically grown, well-rooted Perilla/Shiso plants in 8cm pots.

Prefers rich, well-drained soils and full sun. Plants do not like to be over-watered and it is best to water soil at roots rather than leaves to prevent leaf burn.

Grows to 90cm/3ft with pretty, crinkled, green upper leaves and purple under leaves. Leaves smell spicy and taste mild and a little like ginger.  Use young leaves as an interesting salad leaf or as a garnish or flavouring.
