Corn Spurry (Spergula arvensis) Corn Spurry is a small European annual with whorled leaves and white, pea-sized flowers. It is the county flower of Montgomeryshire in the United Kingdom. However, is it considered a weed in many other countries. Spurry is a name derived from the Latin spargo/spargere, meaning to scatter: from the sowing of the seeds to produce quick-growing early forage. Corn Spurry can be grown as a groundcover/green manure on poor, sandy soil. The seeds are edible and have been used to make bread. The greens have been cooked as a vegetable.
Propagation: Very easy to grow from seed. Sow directly in prepared garden area, patting seed lightly into the loosened loam. Keep moist.
