What are the pros? pretty texture
What are the cons? slow to sprout
This is a really pretty plant. the purple is nice and deep. i planted it with the radishes and spinach in a sunny location. i had nearly given up on it, but it started to come up right as the radishes bolted spinach was done. it is a slow strong grower and does fabulously in our missouri heat and humidity. when other plants look droopy and start to bolt, this is lush and consistent with growth. i have it near zuchinni, tomatoes, basil, daisies, and tuscan kale. it adds depth and color. as for eating, it won't be the star of the show or steal it, but it will add beautiful color and texture. it also needs less water than my other greens. to be honest, I have mostly ignored it and it didn't mind at all.
