HEIRLOOM and NATIVE It’s true, Claytonia is it: Our favorite salad green of all time. As delectable as she is cold-hardy, Claytonia is bright & juicy like succulent, mineral spinach. A fabulous cut-and-come-again salad green, we savor her many cuttings in fall & throughout winter when the temperature rises above freezing as well as in spring, when Claytonia regrows like an emerald carpet before flowering in the heat of May.
