Miner's Lettuce is a fleshy, herbaceous annual plant native to North America's western mountain and coastal regions that is grown as a cold-hardy, moderately frost-tolerant salad green. The plant has multiple upright or spreading stems that grow from a central base. Leaves are heart-shaped and flowers are pink or white. Miner's Lettuce prefers cool, damp conditions and regrows quickly after harvest. Leaves become bitter and reddish in hot weather. It is eaten raw in salads or cooked like spinach, which it slightly resembles in taste.
