Cilantro, Dhania (Eng.), Koljander (Afr.)
Coriander is an annual herb that is often used in curries, chutneys and even soups. It can be used as insect repellent too, but the seeds are the mainly used as a spice - often with meat in the making of biltong. Coriander is a multi-use plant that has also been used in homoeopathic digestive remedies. The umbels of purple flowers make it an attractive plant that can be used in bedding displays in cottage gardens.
