Live Magenta Plant lá cẩm Peristrophe roxburghiana 红丝线 hong si xian
Peristrophe bivalvis Peristrophe roxburghiana is the accepted name of a species in the genus Peristrophe and the family Acanthaceae (previously described here as the synonym P. roxburghiana). It may be called magenta plant, or lá cẩm in Vietnamese and native to southeastern Asia from Assam south to Sri Lanka and east to mainland Southeast Asia, Java, southern China, and Taiwan.
Despite of the lack of beauty in its blooms, Peristrophe roxburghiana is a plant that is valued as a source of natural food dye. An extract of its leaves imparts a magenta colouring which is used to colour various food desserts in Vietnamese cuisine. The Chinese here knows it via the name ‘红丝线’ (hong si xian) which translates into ‘red silk threads’, with reference to the magenta/reddish dye that is found in its leaves which can be extracted by boiling leaves in water. The leaves of Peristrophe roxburghiana have a sweet taste with cooling properties and are also used medicinally to treat cough, dysentery, diarrhoea and bronchitis.
