I planted this as an oddity. It grows prolifically in a patch of my yard where other plants have not done well, in part shade, around the knobby roots of a maple tree. It has seeded into another area around the tree. It is green and pickable all year. I like to saute with garlic and oil. The taste is peculiar, hard to describe, not something I am used to - it has 5 stars in my mind for excellent, reliable growth.
