Product Description

Cress 'Pennycress'
Thlaspi arvense

A friend gifted me seeds from her Pennycress, and legend has that it has been growing in the Skagit Valley since the year I was born. The bright, clean apple-green stems are well branched and loaded with round, textural seed pods. As seed heads mature, they turn the color of wheat. Succession planting is recommended as pods come on all at once. Cress is a terrific textural filler for bouquets and can be dried for autumn wreaths.
