(Silene vulgaris)/(Silene Inflata)
Even if this herb wasn't tasty, which it is, we would be growing this plant for its wonderfully whimsical flowers. During the day honey bees can be seen disappearing into the balloon-like flowers, and at night in our region the sculpit patch turns into a soft fluttering cloud of moths. A native of the Mediterranean, the mild-flavored tender leaves and shoots are traditionally used in pasta dishes, risottos, and omelettes. Start indoors before last frost date.
