Lettuce, Miner’s (Claytonia perfoliata), packet of 50 seeds, organic

$3.95

Family:  Purslane (Portulaccaceae)  (also Spring beauty, Montiaceae)

Winter hardy to zone 7, otherwise grown as a frost-tolerant annual.  40 days to harvest.

(Claytonia) Diminutive forest dweller native to the coast and mountains of the Pacific Northwest, from Alaska to California.  With distinctive, round leaves that are pierced by the stem, the flowers are offered up like a plume on a plate.  The taste is wild, cooling, crunchy and succulent.  Miner’s Lettuce prefers a cool situation in the woodland or winter garden or greenhouse.  Sprinkle the seed on moist medium, barely cover and tamp, then keep evenly moist and cool until germination.  Thinning is difficult and tends to be destructive, so try mixing this small seed with sand before sowing in order to achieve some distance between the seeds.

50 seeds/pkt, certified organically grown

  1. Question

    KENDRA

    Since I used horse manure a few times in the garden Ive had purslane coming up wild. I guess it was in horse grazing areas. Would this be the same as it is not as green as your photo. Its reddish also. Id like to move it all togethet so i would try to dig it up young. Thank you.

      Hi Kendra,
      Various weeds do get imported with manures and horse manure is famous for that. If you’d like to post a picture we may be able to help you with plant identification.
