Does Perilla send out rhizomes?

My late grandfather planted some perilla and mint in the backyard last summer and I've been digging out all the dead stalks from the ground when I noticed what seemed to be fresh roots coming from what I thought was a dead plant. From this "root" was a brand new plant coming up from it. Is this the Perilla sending out rhizomes or is it the mint? The shoots btw look purplish like perilla

I wouldn't think it is the perilla sending out rhizomes. It's an annual and annuals tend to be seed droppers not plants that spread by rhizome.

Don't I wish it sent out rhizomes!! Perilla is my very favorite plant -- but alas, it's an annual.

So it's mint? Well we'll see what happens
