Claytonia
3050CL Claytonia (40 days) Open-pollinated. Also known as Winter Purslane and Miner’s Lettuce, it was the ’49ers green of choice, rich in calcium and vitamin C. Claytonia’s small heart-shaped leaves have a mild but succulent taste that we find attractive. We add it regularly to our mesclun. Barbara Damrosch says it “re-grows like crazy so you can get cut after cut off the same plant.” * Cold-hardy through at least part of the Maine winter. *
