Beautiful Swiss chard perfect for both vegetable and flower beds. Large leaves with a prominent, flat wide mid-rib grow in a colorful, upright rosette. Grows best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciates it in hot climates. Highly nutritious, the leaves taste like spinach, but the plant is a member of the beet family. Frost tolerant. Maturity: 45 plus days after planting.
