Shiso known as Perilla frutescens, or Beefsteakplant, is usually grown in a flower garden or as a house plant. This aromatic plant belongs to the Lamiaceae family, more commonly known as the mint family. The flowers are clustered together in what appears to be a single whorl of flowers but are truly two separate clusters. Its leaves, however, are whorled and appear at right angles in pairs to the next corresponding couple. These leaves can be found on dining tables from Korea to Japan.
