The Q&A Archives: Source for Coleus amboinicus

Question: I found this herb in Floruda and loved it and now I would like to have it here in Memphis. No one here has ever heard of this so I turn to you. It is sooooo wonderful for cooking and to eat raw in salads.

Answer: Well, the first thing I've found is that it's also called Plectranthus amboinicus, and I found a source or two for you! Logee's Greenhouse (141 North St., Danielson CT 06239; ph# 888/330-8038) or Richter's Herbs (; ph# 905/640-6677).
