The Dorset Crapweed.


The Dorset Crapweed (Sisymunda Scatalopedia) is the signature plant of the county of Dorset. Obviously.

However, due to the prudishness of the Victorians, it is not the official county plant. Damn you.

The plant thrives in well fertislised soil, and a strangely sweet fragrance, reminiscent of Tony Hancock.
