What are the pros? Easy, edible, beautiful, hardy
What are the cons? plants get heavy and fall over
Gorgeous. Easy. Edible flowers and leaves. Grows well into fall, even surviving snow for several weeks. Plants that had protection are still growing at the end of December in this mild winter weather (50*F). Flowers are easy to 'candy' and leaves are delicious fresh in salads. The texture is reminiscent of spinach and the taste is like lettuce with a tiny bit of bitterness. Seeds are easy to collect.
