I didn’t plant this but it appears to be perennial and grows very well in shady areas. Pretty purple color but appears in places I don’t want it. Does anyone know what this is?

    We just always called it purple basil. Looks like a duck…etc. Works great in flower arrangements and makes a delicious basil vinegar too.

    This one confuses me. Mom had them when I was a kid. I had called them a hardy purple coleus until I saw them on this site identified as Perilla. There still seems to be some confusion even on this site regarding the ID but check it out here
