Orach, Plume Series  ORGANIC

A lovely mix of iridescent purple, sparkly pink and pale green leaves make an attractive mild addition to salads.  In addition, many visitors to the farm this year remarked on the bold and contrasting spikes of orach seed heads in our field.  Red plume, copper plume, and green plume comprise this mix, and while the color names give an indication of their hues, I would characterize the dark, glowing colors in this mix as plum and burgundy.  They are brilliant, fabulous textures to add to any arrangements, and some of our favorite “flowers” to grow since they have edible value as well.  Grown by SSF.
