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.
Details: Plant type: annual Height: 36-40” Site: full sun Days to maturity: 50-60 days Plant spacing: 2-4” Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow: Direct seed as soon as ground can be worked, staggering plantings every 2 weeks for an extended harvest.
Harvesting/Vase Life: Harvest after the top blooms and seeds are formed all the way to the tip. Expect a vase life of 10 days. To dry, hang upside down in a warm, dry place until firm.
