Organic Shungiku Chrysanthemum
Package contains 500 mg (~200 seeds)
30-50 days to harvest
This edible chrysanthemum is a multifunctional cool season annual. The frilly foliage can be eaten raw in salad or used as a braising green. Plant densely and harvest the main stalks when they are 4-8 inches high, allowing side shoots to regrow for additional harvests. As plants mature, they will produce a cheery mix of white and creamy or bright yellow flowers that can be used as a garnish or dried for tea.
Shungiku Chrystanthemum prefers cool temperatures. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer or late summer/early fall. Tolerates partial shade.
