Growjoy is my "go to” website for live plants, this lettuce is easy to grow and gives off lettuce leaves for a long time. Give it a try.

Favorite Lettuce

I love this lettuce. I had it last year and missed it in my garden when I tried butter crunch instead so I grabbed a plant with my fall season order. Last year it lasted into Midwest fall with almost no upkeep/watering.
