fragrantgardener01March 7, 2010

Just ate this at a Chinese restaurant. Owner doesn't know the English name. Might anyone here know? Is it the same as shepard's purse?

Many thanks,

Found an answer: Kalimeris indica. Might anyone know where to find seeds?

I have been searching for the same plant for a while already, the common name for ma lan tou is "Indian Aster".
Does anyone has a source for this plant?

easy to grow, a small area of it is enough to eat.
