Beta trigyna Caucasian Wild Beet
15 seeds per packet. A perennial native to Europe and Asia, rarely grown in cultivation, that produces large, grey-green, edible, sword-shaped leaves and highly ornamental, towering spikes of long lasting, white flowers from May into July. The leaves can be eaten raw in a salad or cooked and used as an alternative to spinach. The plant is visually amazing in a border or wild garden and the insects just adore it. We really can't praise this plant enough! Height 1 metre. Ideally grown in moisture retentive, well-drained soil in sun, though it thrives in our heavy clay. Warm germinator.
