Also known as Mother of herbs. It is a semi-succulent perennial plant in the family Lamiaceae With pungent oregano-like flavor and odor. Coleus amboinicus grows up to 1 m (3.3 ft) tall. The stem is fleshy and either with long rigid hairs (hispidly villous) or densely covered with soft, short and erect hairs. Leaf margins are coarsely crenate to dentate-crenate except in the base. Aroma of the leaves can be described as a pungent combination of the aromas of oregano, thyme, and turpentine. The taste of the leaves is described as being similar to the one of oregano, but with a sharp mint-like flavor.
