Salsify

When this flower arrived in my garden a few years ago I thought it was just another weed. I found out that the root can be eaten, although I have never tried it – I just enjoy the flowers! Also known as Oyster plant, it is a prolific self-seeder so if you don’t want too many of these plants, remove the dead flower heads before they seed everywhere!
