Multi-branched, prolific plants are 4-5 ft. tall and have a unique taste
somewhere between arugula, cilantro and rue. The purple leaves, harvested
from July to hard frost, are used daily with different chiles, and said to
be used medicinally for liver ailments and high blood pressure.

"butterfly" and use it like cilantro.
