Artist's Description

One of the first flowers of the seashore, scurvy grass can now be found around beaches all over the island. Its leaves are rich in vitamin C and were eaten by sailors to prevent scurvy.

In Manx, this flower is called “Scrub Y Traie”, which means “Scrub of the Beach”.

English Scurvygrass (Cochlearia anglica) is also present on the island and can hybridise with Common Scurvygrass, making it difficult to tell the difference between them.
