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? Attention-grabber

What are the cons? Short harvest season

Review:

The photo isn't lying; these leaves really are that stunning. And they'll get lots of attention in your garden or in salads. A relative of wild lamb's quarters, they taste similar: a thick, spinachlike green that can be cooked or eaten raw. Really dresses up a salad! They're a spring sprouter, coming up long before it stops freezing. But what comes up early must also go to seed early; by July, they're dropping offspring all over your soil. If you want a delicious, beautiful, and healthy plant that requires almost no care and comes back year after year, this is for you! But if you're a stickler for crop rotation, pull these out before they can go to seed or you'll have a whole forest of orach next year.

What are the pros? beautiful, tasty, long lasting

What are the cons? variable germination

Review:

While only about half germinated, those that did performed VERY well. Planted in March and they lasted through June, withstanding some hot temps. My kids loved picking the leaves for salad - they're beautiful - and their beauty encouraged them to eat more. Then these lovelies seeded PROFUSELY so I have a lot more to sow this fall (when it's cooler) and next spring. Definitely recommend!

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.
