Crithmum maritimum



Okay foragers, here’s a hardly edible that might appear on a NOMA menu. Sea or Rock Samphire.  Don’t you just love the common name? Native to European coastlines, it adapts well to garden settings, but I would stress it prefers well drained soil. It is an attractive umbellifer with lime yellow green flower heads that will entice pollinators to your garden. The filagreed succulent-like foliage is edible and tastes somewhat like a cross between capers and  asparagus. Grows 12-15″ tal and will grow in seaside as well as average garden conditions!  Available to ship June 12.
