Valerianella dentata whole Valerianella dentata close

This is quite a tall Cornsalad with a wide branching habit. It is often recorded as a cornfield weed and that is exactly where we found it amongst other typical cornfield plants like Papaver hybridum (Rough Poppy).

It can be found frequently in southern England but records get fewer in the west and north. It is rarely recorded in Scotland and is dotted around in Wales and Ireland.
