Aquatic or semi-aquatic perennial down to Zone 4, native of Europe but with a history that goes back several millennia to Egypt and China. Related to cabbage, mustard greens and arugula. Lends a bite to salads and soups, and as a tea.
60 days. Start seeds indoors before last frost and transplant to a cold frame, keeping well-watered. Alternately, direct seed in a soggy location after the threat of frost has passed. Good choice for container or hydroponic gardening . Keep picked and use fresh. Once it starts flowering the leaves turn bitter. Very hardy, bordering on invasive.
