Winter Purslane / Claytonia. A dainty looking hardy annual with its early leaves borne at the end of short stalks followed by quantities of heart-shaped leaf pairs each wrapped around a white flowered stem. The leaves look attractive in any salad and have a wild and fresh taste. Pick as needed as plants re-grow readily. Can be cooked like Spinach.
Maturity 45 days from direct sowing.
