      Det vokste ei stor Crambe cordifolia ( = Crambe tatarica ? likner
      makroskopisk sjølv om den er oppgitt emd eige navn i Pfaf) ved
      oppkjørselen til Finnsås Småbruksskule (Jørstad i Snåsa) på høgre side
      på 1970 tallet, husker ikkje om den sto der sist eg var på besøk ca 2000.
      Eg har rikeleg frøproduksjon, men erusikker på om eg har meir, dei
      spirer av seg sjølv ute, finner evt kanskje ei plante eller avlegger til
      deg....
      Får du avleggere av din Crambe maritima ??

      mvh
