Spurrey (Spurry; Sand, Sea, Rock, Corn Spurrey)

 Feed in Moderation
  • Common Name: Spurrey (Spurry; Sand, Sea, Rock, Corn Spurrey)
  • Latin Name: Spergularia spp.
  • Family Name: Caryophyllaceae
Although not toxic, Spurrey does contain saponins, which if fed in excess could cause irritation of the mucous membranes and act as an appetite suppressant.  So feed in moderation only and as part of a wider varied diet.  Although most Spurrey plants have pink flowers, several species have white flowers.
