Scurvy grass growing alongside the A50 near Sudbury, Derbyshire.

.It’s called Danish scurvy grass, or Cochlearia groenlandica to give it its Latin name, and for years it only grew in coastal areas as it needs salty conditions to survive.
But now, thanks to councils gritting and salting our roads over the winter months, this hardy plant has taken hold in the heart of Derbyshire – possibly as far inland as you can get in the UK.
In fact, according to the latest research by national wild flower charity Plantlife, it’s the fastest spreading plant in the country.
