Scurvygrass, or Spoonwort, is a rosette-forming biennial from the Brassica family that grows to 30cm. The green leaves, which have a bitter taste, have been used as a source of vitamin C and were traditionally used to treat scurvy, and can be dried or used as an extract for this purpose. They can also be applied externally to heal ulcers. The white or pale mauve flowers are noted for attracting wildlife. Plants are tolerant of a wide range of conditions including part shade, saline or marshy soils and cool coastal conditions.
