Cress ‘Green Dragon’
Long, strong stems have a heavy branching habit, producing 6-12 airy stems from a single plant. Stems are covered in tiny apple-green disc-shaped seeds. Plants are durable and age well, turning pink, gold, and green together and transitioning well into autumn. Hands down, one of the best bouquet fillers, and a must-grow for mixed bouquets and fall wreaths, as it can be used either fresh or dried.
