Virginia Pepperweed (Lepidium virginicum) is a host plant for the Great Southern White butterfly (GSW). A Florida native plant that is very important for wildlife - and we can eat it. Allow this to grow in your garden or intentionally plant it to attract this beautiful butterfly to your garden. The young leaves can be used as a potherb, sautéed or used raw, such as in salads. The young seedpods can be used as a substitute for black pepper. The leaves contain protein, vitamin A and vitamin C. It prefers sunny locales with dry soil (sounds like Florida to me).
