Coelus aromaticus


Coleus amboinicus or Plectranthusamboinicus, called as Omavalli in Tamil is a semi-succulent perennial plant with a pungent oregano-like flavor and odor. This fast growing plant is primarily grown as a spice plant and an ornamental plant.

The plant grows to a hight of 1 meter. It’s stem is fleshy, with either long rigid fur or densely covered with soft, short and erect fur. Old stems are smooth.

The aroma of the leaves is a combination of oregano, thyme, and turpentine while the taste of the leaves is similar to oregano, but with a sharp mint-like punch.
