Dame’s Rocket

Dame' Rocket

Dame’s Rocket also known as Sweet Rocket or Dame’s Violet – is no relation to the Salad Rocket although it is also edible. I found these in a hedge in Maresfield and I initially thought it was Wild Phlox but discovered that Phlox has 5 petals while Dame’s Rocket has only four.
