London Rocket

London Rocket is an aggressive and invasive weed of the Brassicaceae (mustard) family and is found in Arizona and elsewhere, but quickly dies out when the hot temperatures arrive. The plant responds well after fire, and its best to chemically treat infestations. It's abundance and rapid growth following the Great Fire of London in the 1600's resulted in its common name, London Rockets. Several ethno-botanical uses have been identified for London Rocket, uses include use of the dried seeds which were placed under the lids of sore eyes to cause weeping. I would think so....
