"This emerald green beauty is sure to bring luck in the New Year and is a good staple in the kitchen for making stews, soups, and curries. They can be cooked fresh or dried. The flowers are beautiful to see and the consistent production throughout the season will surprise you. These nitrogen capturing plants seem to need nothing to grow and are good at pushing nitrogen into the soil; win-win situation for the soil and for you. This particular variety yields high and has a bush growth habit." -Buffalo Seed Company
