40 days to harvest Claytonia perfoliata

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.

    I am thrilled to have (re)discovered this plant. It overwintered easily in my hoop house and sprang to life in spring. She is delicious and oddly female…hermaphrodite botanically speaking. She got leggy in late spring, went to seed and dropped them on the ground. I will reserve this space for her and will plant this and mache (her male consort?) in early fall (along with some cold hardy lettuces) in an effort to have harvest-able greens all winter.
