white lettuce

White drooping flowers on a smooth purple stem with latex inside. Whole plant useable. Just a bunch of leaves for some seasons, and then one day, it shoots up into a straight stick-like stalk like a rocket shooting into the sky, with the purply-white flowers on top. The leaves can be eaten like lettuce.
