Spignel is a Local Priority Species for Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire. It’s a pleasantly scented perennial with clusters of tiny white flower heads and dark green feathery leaves. Its leaves and roots are edible, and have also been used as a herbal medicine. Spignel seeds taste strongly of curry and the plant was once an unpopular plant with diary farmers as it apparently flavoured the milk!
Flowers June to July
