Leaves provide food for the caterpillars of the Bath White, Cabbage White and Orange Tip butterflies. Plants are found on disturbed wasteland and roadsides. It is a very attractive plant, the name comes from the French for “little darling”. The dried flowers provide a pleasant herbal tea, roots have been used to make a yellow dye called “weld,” since the first millennium BC.
