A beautiful type of cress with light green and white leaves with black spots. On this unusual background the flowers seem to stand out even better. The strong peppery tasting leaves and particularly the flowers are used in salads. Sow in the garden along wire mesh or a trellis. Can also be used as ground cover, and grown in larger boxes as a hanging plant. Very little or no fertilisation. The fresh harvested seeds are sometimes preserved as capers.
