Lebanese Cress - Potted Plant

Lebanese Cress - Potted Plant Image

Not from Lebanon, nor the Mediterranian, although I'm sure that it grows there well, this beautiful cress is more native to the British Isles.
It will grow in a wide range of circumstances, from still water to quite dry soil and is always a delight to use as a garnish or salad vegetable.
It is perfect for pots or container gardening, being attractive and useful at the same time.
The leaves can also be used in cooking without losing it's flavour.
It has round stems and pairs of opposite leaves which are pointed and irregularly toothed.
It is easily confused with Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum, which has rounded leaves which are not opposite, and Berula erecta which has similar shaped leaves but characteristic dark bands on stems.
