Hardy and tasty
by UT Gardener
Grew well in rocky soil with hot summers. Nice, thick stalks and great flavor. I overwintered them in the garden along a south facing wall with no other protection in temperatures that dipped below zero a couple of times. Grew back the following spring with no problems.
