    I can buy both here, but the difference is not clear to me. Searching the internet I found that both names are mixed up a lot. Who knows exactly what the difference is, possibly with picture?

    Thanks

    Eustralis is old name, new classification is under Pogostemon, both are same plants

    However. I got Eustralis from a producer and Pogostemon from Tropica. The one from Tropica is a darker green with larger leaves. So it could be many sub-species around

    The Pogostemon I saw look more like L. Aromatica. Kind of a broad leaf version. Since I already have L. Aromatica, I want the one with the small leaves, so have to be careful what I'm buying.

    thanks,

    Then better you have the plant in hands before buying it or ask about the online shop you want to order from.
