(European field pansy) Rich in resveratrol! The health benefits of resveratrol in red wine and red grapes are well known to many. But few know that the flowers of wild pansy have 50 to 100 times as much resveratrol as the skin of red grapes. This polyphenol protects the body against cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and slows the ageing process. There is no more fun way to take your resveratrol! Sprinkle the tiny edible creamy-white flowers on salads, open sandwiches and crackers with cheese or pate. The flavour hints of wintergreen, throwing a surprising and delightful loop to any meal. Easy to grow annual wildflower found growing throughout North America from Greenland to the Deep South of America. Ht. 20cm/8in.
