Good Salsify Mammoth Sandwich Island

by Karen
(Oregon)

This grows well in my Pacific Northwest garden, even in my relatively low sun conditions. All parts are tasty, but once they flower, be sure to either eat the flowers, or dead head them. They make a seed head like a giant dandelion! I was terrified I was going to start an invasive species! That said, if you keep on it and collect the seeds, you'll never want again for salsify! A tall plant that needs staking in the second year during flowering.
