Scurvy Grass (Cochlearia officinalis)

A pretty perennial with fragrant white flowers and succulent leaves. Found on coastal marshes and cliffs. Prefers a shady position and well-drained soil, although can tolerate maritime exposure and saline soil. Edible leaves and flower heads can be added raw to salads or used in soups, stews etc. Sharp taste. In the past was used by sailors to prevent scurvy on long voyages due to its very high Vitamin C content. Also a very good bee plant.
