Cochlearia danica
(Map updated: March 2008)

Danish scurvy-grass is an early-flowering annual species, smaller than the other scurvy-grass species and with a tendency to have pale mauve flowers. The leaves are like small ivy leaves, and the whole plant is much smaller than other scurvy-grass species. It is frequent around the coast on rocks on the upper sea shore; also sometimes on walls and buildings near the sea..
