This striking new edible landscaping chard has crispy two-toned stalks striped in hot pink and white that are eye-catching against their vibrant green leaves. Harvest at the baby leaf stage for salads and then let the plants mature into beautiful, big-framed ornamental plants you can harvest and enjoy for months. Peppermint Stick is equally at home in vegetable gardens or flowerbeds. These bolt resistant plants stand up well to hot weather.
