Crambe Overview

The genus Crambe contains around 40 hardy, annual and perennial plants originating from Europe, Asia, Turkey and Eastern Africa. They produce masses of characteristic small white or yellow flowers, which together create a striking visual, reminiscent of fluffy white clouds. Also grown for their leaves, which are large and distinct across species, some are heart-shaped, others are crinkled or fleshy and glaucous.
