OTHER: The February Orchid, aka Violet Cress, is an herb from the mustard family that is native to China where it is grown as a vegetable. In China, the stalks, leaves, & flowers are all used. The flowers & mild flavored leaves are used in salads, or the leaves can be used as cooking greens like you would use spinach.


The February Orchid is well worth growing for its ornamental value alone. The brightly colored purple flowers with yellow eyes are large, measuring 1 ½ - 2” across, & the leaves are a lovely heart shape. Grow them in beds, as a border, in containers, naturalized in meadow, or as a beautiful ground cover. These plants are able to grow in most soils from loose and sandy to heavy clays. Collect their seeds to plant more February Orchids the following season, or simply allow them to drop to the ground & reproduce naturally.
