Re: Culinary Herbs That Grow Well in Shade

Perilla come in green and red. Both are medicinal herbs and taste great in salads. Have a anise taste and do not bleed like red cabbage. Spreads by seeds everywhere. Medicinal use: Antibiatic leaves, are used fresh in sushi to reduce bacteria poisoning, and dried to treat flu, coughs and nausea. (Eyewitness Handbooks Herbs)
I grow the culinary herbs in pots on the steps where I can move them to shelterered area if frost is coming. Then move indoors to windowsill in late fall. Also I remember to water them if I have to walk by them..
