Hardier to cold and heat and slower growing than standard arugula. Bees love the small yellow flowers which also make a nice edible garnish. Grows all year round and can perennialize in mild climates. Not a true arugula (diplotaxis not cruciferaceae) so does not cross with other brassica. Readily self-seeds.
Sandy loam. South facing. Northern California coastal.

The Mediterranean climate is characterized by warm dry summers and mild, wet winters. As a result, areas with this climate receive almost all of their precipitation during their winter, autumn and spring seasons, and may go anywhere from 4 to 6 months during the summer without having any significant precipitation.
