WILD FLOWERS OF CORNWALL – RED VALERIAN, CENTRANTHIS RUBER

While on vacation I have been driving around Cornwall a lot this week, and have seen much picturesque scenery all over the county. Virtually everywhere I have been, I have seen an abundance of pretty wild flowers poking out of the walls, rocks and cliffs.

One flower that I see a lot of around here I think is called Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber), also called Jupiter’s Beard and Spur Valerian, but sometimes known locally as Fowey Pride, Ladies’ Needlework, Pride of Padstow or Saucy Bet.

I believe the leaves can be eaten and mixed into a salad or boiled and shaken up with butter. Perhaps someone might know if that is true or not?
