Claytonia sibirica


Claytonia sibirica (Claytonia sibirica)

This is one of the purslane family - it seeds itself around, and it's very welcome to!!!

I should be able to find some seedlings to pot up. I'll let you know....

The plant is a tiny one, so the seedlings are even smaller! LOL.

Delicate and perfectly formed, lovely.

I don't know this one at all. Thought at first glance it was a geranium or erodium. I'll google it:-)

Try 'Purslane', Ba, if you don't find Claytonia'. I believe it's edible, but I haven't tried.

In those circumstances Spritz, I should try it on someone else first;-)

I reckon you're right, Ba! LOL.

According to Chiltern Seeds : it self-seeds itself with cheerful, rabbit-like abandon, so much in fact you'll be glad to know you can chomp away at the surplus either added to salads or, after a brief boiling in the minimum of water, as a green vegetable - it can't be worse than cabbage!

I still don't fancy it, Wagger....I'd rather see it in the garden, thank you! ;-)

I knew I'd read that you could eat it somewhere.....
