What are the pros? perennial, taste, easy

What are the cons? texture

Review:

I seeded this in 2015 and it has grown as a perennial in zone 5b. It's the only plant that looks alive in the snow! I even transplanted it at the beginning of 2016 - it looked terrible, but then it put up new shoots and looks great now. Because it is a perennial, I moved it to the herb garden where things don't get ripped up for the annual tilling. As other have said, it puts down strong roots and outlives everything else, but it doesn't seem invasive. Just forms a nice foot-high mound of foliage. I strip the leaves off the stems and put them in salad. They are a nice accent, but not great on their own. We like the taste but they are a bit mucilaginous, so on their own the texture isn't great.

What are the pros? Ferny good looks, great flavor

What are the cons? none

Review:

I had heard the word burnet before but had no idea what it meant. These plants took a while to get started, but have become a fixture of my garden, where I have them growing at the edge of the bed; they are low and delicate-looking, so this is a perfect spot. The delightful flavor is so welcome, giving salads that cucumber-like freshness and lending themselves well to light dressings where their beautiful shape can best be appreciated. They are a surprise to friends when I serve salads with this wonderful green. To use these in salads, I cut or pick a handful and then zip the little leaves off the stems. I look forward to growing burnet year after year. Plants are healthy; no sign of pest damage.

What are the pros? will sprout in october

What are the cons? easily over crowded.

Review:

Got this for cold hardiness and it's "perennial" nature. Have yet to taste it. It went from seed to three true leaves between October and December with just a pop up greenhouse for protection. Shows great promise for winter growers.

What are the pros? pretty lil' thing

What are the cons? Doesn't taste like much

Review:

Have a lot of herbs, got this one to round out my collection. Looked forward to a cuke-like taste to add to salads, which didn't happen. No taste (maybe because of my clay soil?) Mine are petite things with pretty little leaves. The plant seems to bloom most of the spring/summer with nondescript flowers. Reproduces steadily - it is acting more like an ankle-high ground cover right now, so I leave it. Maybe it will outrace the ground ivy, it is certainly hardy. Doesn't seem to bother anyone, and it may attract beneficials to my garden.
