Eat the rainbow with this vast array of brightly colored plants! Enjoy magenta, gold, fuchsia, rhubarb, peach, and white stemmed leaves, all for your sautéing pleasure. This assortment of hues is created by allowing single-color varieties to cross pollinate, resulting in this distinctively gorgeous, unique blend of vigorous plants. Rainbow sports mostly savoyed leaves, with a few smooth-leaved plants to keep things interesting. Thanks to our friends at Uprising Seeds for developing this impressive variety.
