    It’s Salsify, and if you’re in a pinch the roots and leaves are edible.

    • Marty from Montana says:

      Salsify is a highly invasive weed. If it gets highly established no other plant can live as it releases chemicals that keep other plant from growing. I have spent many hours spraying these weeds to keep them down our property. I’m not talking about a few lots many Acres.

  7. Shannon says:
