This lettuce is difficult to describe. The leaves are sea green, wavy edged with large teeth, and nearly triangular in shape. Heads begin as compact rosettes of imbricated leaves lofted by their toothy margins. With maturity and exposure to sun the toothed margins become pink-tinged and somewhat erect, like reaching flames. A very interesting and unique lettuce
