aka beefsteak, shiso.
Planted on south-facing balcony; one in earthbox, one not.
2014-06-06: The plants were really done about a month ago. They weren't really successful (they might have been root-bound), but we did get enough for garnish.
2014-07-05: Lots of volunteer shiso sprouting!
2015-01-30: So many shiso sprouts!
So much shiso....
