(Plant heights are given at maturity)

Barbarea, Upland Cress or Wintercress is a hardy perennial member of the Mustard family (Cruciferae). Used as a winter salad green, it also has appeal as a bedding plant. The leaves are slightly rounded and borne from a basal center. Stems are topped with yellow blooms in the spring.

Propagation is done either by digging and dividing existing plants or by sowing seeds. Seeds should be sown in pots, trays or a bed prepared with a medium of 1 part sphagnum peat to 1 part sand. They should be covered lightly and kept moist, but not soggy at about 70F. When seedlings are about 2 inches in height, they can be transplanted to larger containers or directly to the garden, if the temperatures do not fall below 65F
