Chameleon Plant or Houttuynia cordata in Latin, is a perennial plant native to Japan, Korea and South Asia, where it grows in humid and shady places.
Houttuynia cordata grows well in very humid soil or even slightly submerged in water in partial or full sun.
Its seeds are small and black in color.

Grown as a leafy vegetable, particularly in Vietnam, where it is called giàp Cá or diep Cá, it is used as a fresh garnish.
The leaf has an unusual taste that we cannot describe.
