(Pad­ina pavon­ica)

Country Life Every Week - - Kitchen Garden Cook Radicchio -

Pea­cock’s tail is some­thing of a south-coast spe­cialty. It gets a men­tion be­cause it’s one of the pret­ti­est of the sea­weeds, form­ing clus­ters of its fan-shape fronds in rock pools. This species is an ex­am­ple of a sea­weed that’s found a use as a cos­metic—as an anti-age­ing cream.
