You may think you just planted the bright lights of Vegas in your garden with all the neon you will see from 'Bright Lights' Swiss Chard. Each leaf on this easy to grow leafy vegetable is unique with a great mix of bright neon colors including gold, pink, orange, purple, red, or white stalks topped with bright green or bronze leaves. Milder tasting than ordinary Swiss Chard and a great addition to any salad or plant for outstanding colorful decoration. Each plant produces good yields but you might want to grow some just to look at the constant riot of brilliant color in your garden or in a mixed container on a deck or patio that will make you snap to attention. Plant 'Bright Lights' in full sun and you will find yourself harvesting bright colorful chard in no time, pick the outer stalks when they reach 20" and allow the smaller stalks to mature. Also, this is the perfect plant for cropping multiple times in the garden especially toward fall when cooler temperatures will aloow it to thrive and allow its color to be even more riotous!
