Purple Orach is a favorite here at Good Seed. Also known as Mountain Spinach, this nutritious, easy-to-grow heirloom is an amaranth family member and, once established, will reseed itself. It is up before the spinach in the spring and provides a colorful and vitamin-rich addition to spring salads and soups. Does not bolt readily and does not get bitter with age. Valued medicinal and dye plant. A favorite for permaculture, polyculture and homestead gardens.
