As summer blazed on, I thought sure the root would dry up and wither away, especially since it was so close to a concrete curb. Instead, it started putting out new leaves and I decided to leave it just to see how long it could survive. The answer appears to be "indefinitely". I still haven't gotten up the courage to taste those leaves, since heat allegedly makes them bitter. If you're in my neighborhood, though, and you want to stop by and taste them for yourself, go for it!
