known as salad burnet in the States, is actually a native plant of France. Like mâche
, or lamb's lettuce, it is one of a handful of wild "herbs" which have been gathered since antiquity, are still gathered in the wild by some, and planted in gardens my many. Petite pimprenelle
is a perennial plant in the rose family which forms a pretty rosette of blue green, pinnate leaves. These have a delightful cucumbery taste which makes a delicious addition to your salad bowl. In addition, if you love contrasting shapes and colors in your salads as much as I do, you will love this plant.
Easy to grow in moderately well-drained soil. Hint: Plant the seeds 1 inch deep. Bonus: pretty red flowers in early summer. Also listed in our wildflower section. Certified organic seed.
