Product Description

Toothwort – Lathraea Squamaria

Toothwort is a plant that thrives in moist conditions. It is a thick ground cover plant with deep green scalloped leaves that spreads quickly throughout spring and into early summer when lovely white or light pink bell-shaped flowers appear. Soon after flowering Toothwort goes dormant, but reemerges later in the year for a second flower-less showing.

Toothwort is also an edible plant. Roots and leaves can be eaten raw or lightly cooked, and make a delicious addition to any salad. The roots can also be used to create a tangy relish or a horseradish.

The nectar of the flowers attracts butterflies and honey bees, which is one of the many reasons these perennial plants are so loved by horticulturists.
