Tia To (or called Tiet To) is a Vietnamese version of Hojiso, with slightly smaller leaves but much stronger aromatic flavor. Leaves have green color on the top side and purplish red on the bottom side. The strong flavors are perfect for sea food cooking of shrimp and fish dishes.

Plants can be grown in open field or container as a wonderful ornamental plant in the backyard. Perennial, Zone 10-11, in 3" pot.
