Vietnamese Balm

Vietnamese Balm (Elsholtzia ciliata) – This perennial is native to the temperate regions of southern and central Asia where it is used to flavour fish, eggs, vegetables, noodles, and rice dishes, and is frequently included in the platter of mixed greens served at almost every Vietnamese meal. In Thailand it is served as a vegetable. Not widely available in the West, it can be found in markets where there is a sizeable Vietnamese population. It is often cultivated as an annual, and store-bough cutting are easily rooted in water for planting in the garden.
