Miner's Lettuce

Miner's Lettuce is a bright green, fleshy, succulent plant native to North America, and especially abundant in California. Its leaves are characterized by being flat, lilly-pad like, and range from very small (the size of a pea), to a bit larger than a post-it note. The plant also has tiny white flowers when in bloom, and prefers shady moist areas. Miner's lettuce tends to grow in large patches, fairly close to the ground, and is usually around 5-10 inches tall. Another main characteristic of this plant is that it is edible, and makes a tasty wild addition to salads.
