The closest thing we in this desert can conjure to resemble a tropical rainforest is this stand of "Red Orach". Selected as Montana's Centennial Vegetable in 1989, from its being found growing in backyard gardens abandoned by miners in Bannack, the last eighth of a century has seen it become a reliably volunteering semi-weed in my garden, always welcome as the first gift of the earth in spring, and admired for being the only thing to attain a height of over 6 feet later on.
