Crithmum Maritimum - Rock Samphire / Sea Fennel

25 Seeds

Found on the coasts of the British Isles, the Mediterranean and North Africa, Crithmum is an edible plant that can be pickled or eaten raw, traditionally used as a common scurvy preventative.

Requiring full sun to thrive, it grows as a small bush, traditionally on rock faces, with fleshy grey-green narrow leaflets. Stems reach up to around 40cm long, with the leaflets only around 3-4cm long, needle-like in shape. Umbels of green-yellow flowers appear from late spring through to the early autumn months. Can be grown as a trailing or hanging plant.

Fully hardy to -15°C.
