Peppergrass, Lepidium virginicum Florida Native Plant Short Verse

Florida Wildflower Poetry, Peppergrass, Lepidium virginicum
vacant lot snacking
munch leaves and spicy seeds
i'll try if you do

Peppergrass, Lepidium virginicum.  Peppergrass brings back fun memories from my childhood where we would sit in the vacant lot and pick peppergrass seeds off the stem for spicy childhood snacking.  An important forage plant for wildlife and birds.
