Makes salad with a zing

It easily grows from seed and is ornamental enough to mix with pansies and violas in flower pots, making it practical to put in flower garden. It has a hot spicy flavor for those who like to give their salads a zing.

Ornamental vigorous plant produces fresh greens for at least part of the winter. It is not as cold tolerant as kale or collards but here in West TN I have had greens up to January and the plants will come back as soon as the weather warms up, some time in March. The plant also has very pretty yellow flowers in spring that reach 4 feet tall and have a delicious scent. Cook the shredded leaves with olive oil to tone down the sharp flavor. Delicious!
