What are the pros? hardy, low maintenance
What are the cons? ???
These germinated quickly and did surprisingly well, despite extraordinarily poor soil and infrequent watering. The leaves developed very quickly, and have a lovely peppery flavour, perfect for salads and sandwiches.
Sadly, the groundhogs loved them as much as I do, and killed every last one before they could bloom, so I cannot speak with certainty to the appearance of flavour of the flowers.
Still, I highly recommend these! Both as a hardy and all but maintenance-free ornamental, and as a heat-resistant salad green that continues to produce prolifically throughout the summer. (You know, unless you have a horrible groundhog problem and loose your whole garden.)
