Water-cress -

An aquatic plant of pungent, salty and rather bitter flavor, which is especially popular as a spring salad. It grows wild in many parts, flourishing best in running waters with sandy bottoms. Under cultivation it is generally raised in wide shallow ditches of slowly moving Water.

Water-cress offers itself as a pleasant means of providing the blood with a good supply of natural salts, potash and acids, for it is more generally endowed with such matters than any other vegetable of general consumption, excepting only spinach.
