Houttuynia

Houttuynia (Houttuynia cordata) – The leaves of this Japanese native are used to flavor soups, fish, and pork dishes in Japan and throughout Southeast Asia. It has a strong flavor similar to cilantro with distinctly fishy undertones, and is called “fish mint” by the Vietnamese. It requires lots of moisture and prefers to be planted at the edge of a pond or stream.
