Biting Stonecrop

The Biting Stonecrop on the walls at Einar is obviously confused. There’s one solitary flower left when it’s meant to flower in May to July. Earlier in the year it’s covered in beautiful sulphur-yellow, five-petalled flowers and lives up to one of it’s many other names, Goldmoss.

Apparently it tastes so bitter that it was thought to have medicinal qualities. Eating it would certainly have made you forget about any of your other ailments.
