Pointed green leaves on burgundy stems have a coriander aroma and make an excellent addition to salads, salsa and meat dishes. Vietnamese Coriander can also be used in place of mint or cilantro in most dishes to give them a unique taste. This plant has a refreshing taste that is almost hot like pepper on the aftertaste.
Vietnamese Coriander grows to about 24" tall and has a mound type growth with aromatic leaves. These plants love full sunlight and a well drained but constantly moist soil.
