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? Attractive

What are the cons? Not much actual produce

Review:

I'm on the fence about this one. It was pretty, but didn't produce much and took a lot longer to mature than any of my other greens. By the time it was mature, I found it to be bitter and old tasting. Probably won't plant this again next year.

What are the pros? Early, Amazing Colors

What are the cons? None

Review:

This orach is so beautiful. I'm always skeptical of the colors when I'm looking at pictures online, but the leaves of this plant are truly stunning. So much easier to grow than spinach, too. I winter sowed the seeds and had nearly 100% germination. Will definitely be growing this one again! You can see it growing in my garden here: https://youtu.be/75MKOVL8grM

What are the pros? holy colors, Batman!

What are the cons? explaining to coworkers

Review:

This has made me feel super successful. I've done a wonderful job killing spinach and lettuce over my attempts to grow my own food, but planting Orach this year has already made me the salad champion. The not deadness of the plants, the vibrant colors in my salad, and the look of envy and confusion on my coworkers face as I eat my salad has been made all the sweeter by the fact that I did it and I managed not to kill the plants.

What are the pros? Appearance, Texture

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are some of the most beautiful plants I have ever grown in my salad bed. I am enchanted by them and will probably grow them forever-more. The flavor is very mild. I have prepared them in garden salad and in scrambled eggs. The texture of the leaves is somewhat meaty like chard, they repel water like kale, the stems are thick and substantial, and they are every bit as beautiful as they are pictured here. My mix seems to have mostly green Orach and a bit of red, the flavor is the same in each. The red adds truly remarkable color to a salad! Absolutely recommend.

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.
