Beta 'Bright Lights'
Common Name: Swiss Chard

Beta  'Bright Lights'
Zoom In Photo:

Bright stalks in shades of yellow, orange, pink and green make a striking contrast to the rich green foliage. So colourful, 'Bright Lights' is showy enough for ornamental borders, beds and containers as well as the veggie patch. Swiss chard is grown for its upright stalks of glossy, crinkled leaves. It is a useful green for the summer months when it's too hot for spinach. A biennial usually grown as an annual, it can continue to produce through the fall and into the winter.
