Probably the most purple orach you'll ever meet. What's orach? Why, it's a delicious spinach relative that grows much taller, produces leaves for much longer, and comes in a purple form! It's an old Eurasian kitchen garden staple that will readily self-sow and become a fixture on your landscape if you let it. But what a welcome fixture! This variety was bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed in Oregon. Frank says this about 'Triple Purple': "Our most purple kind, deeply savoyed and thick-leaved with a salty flavor that goes great in summer salads. This species loves the heat, and keeps its color when other salad items are fading into pale." Enjoy!
