Miner's Lettuce
« on: 2019-04-07, 06:01:38 PM »
My Miner's lettuce is back up. I think I noticed both the Claytonia perfoliata and Claytonia rubra. What is more I got some coming back up where I planted the new packet of perfoliata last year.

I also dug up four plants at my sister's place in Washington state. Two that looked rubra and two that were greener. Should be a different rubra variation though.

Still don't have any of the third species or any known hybrids in the mix.

Since this is a new thread my goal here is to collect all three species and some of the additional within species diversity. Then also either collect or allow to reform some of the hybrids. Miners lettuce has much more to offer than what's currently on the market.

I had no idea there were 3 of them
I live in the 93614 area and have it growing all over
looks like mine are likely Claytonia perfoliata
I can send you seeds in a month or two as they are flowering now.
