A mix of radiant colors, all the more beautiful because the plants reach a nice size—very well suited to edible landscaping beds. Colors include red, gold, green, pink, carmine, and pure purple. Who says greens have to be green? This Frank Morton/Wild Garden Seed original is just plain fun!

What are the pros? Tolerates Alot, Beautiful

What are the cons? Slow Start, Etiolates Easy

Review:

I got some seeds from a friend about a year ago and only got around to planting them this year. Admittedly, I kind of jumped the gun, sowing them indoors in March. Of the 10 or so seeds I only got 3 sprouts. They started off pretty weak and became etiolated in the window light. However, when they got moved to the sunroom when the weather warmed up they began to take off. They transplanted without any problems and are now about 2ft tall and flowering. We didn't eat them, but they are very attractive plants. We keep them in a small 4 gallon pot by the deck to admire. If they reseed themselves, we might actually get around to eating them next year. They don't mind the small space, the heat (we're getting up to the 80s so far), the chilly nights (dropping to about 45 Fahrenheit), didn't miss a beat when put outdoors (unlike my crybaby tomatoes), no pests, and haven't needed a drop of food other than what was in the pot mix.

What are the pros? Super durable and cold hardy.

What are the cons? light hungry

Review:

Started these in November of 2015 in an inexpensive pop up greenhouse. As of January they all have three sets of true leaves and have survived multiple nights with temps in the teens and being frozen. I believe they would have been better off started in march, instead of being over wintered. I would absolutely suggest them as an early spring plant.

What are the pros? grows well in the high tunnel

What are the cons? none

Review:

Love the mixed Orach! Grows well here, plants are 6" or more. Year to year differences in growth habits but they always go. Even with my iffy soil and terrible watering habits. I've successfully companion planted them with squash, kohlrabi, broccoli, corn. I love the spinachy flavor and they don't bolt until the end of the season.

What are the pros? Beautiful, tasty, easy

What are the cons? Doesn't last all summer

Review:

I started the whole packet indoors, loved on them, transplanted them, and the deer devoured them. But, to my delight, they almost all came back! Several times! I was sad, because I didn't think I would get purple seeds since they were all eaten. I was mistaken. I've got thousands of seeds from each color plant out there. They were a real show-stopper in the front yard apple guilds and a lovely mild salad green. No pest problems at all. Very drought tolerant (at least it never seemed to need watering). The dislike is not a fault of the plant. I'm glad I have tons of seeds. It was the only negative I could think of.

What are the pros? Delicious, colorful, healthy

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

This was my first time growing or using Orach. I planted it in the fall, like lettuce, not realizing that it could take summer heat, so that probably slowed it down. Once it took off, however, it was beautiful, sturdy and delicious! I am now planting again in the spring and plan to make this a regular in our garden. My son hates lettuce, but loves Orach -- a great way to get him to eat greens!
