I planted this wasabi last spring, thinking I was foolish to believe it could over-winter. But here it is! By fall I should be able to harvest the root.... In the meantime I can enjoy the foliage while I hunt for a suitable recipe. The plant will likely get about 3 feet tall during the season. I can't believe the bugs have been at it already... hopefully it is too hot for their taste and they will leave it alone over the next few months!
