Description Planting Instructions Tips
 
A beautiful, miraculous, mineral and vitamin-rich multifunctional plant. Seeds are a valued medicinal, both as a liver tonic and liver tissue rebuilder. All parts are edible and highly nutritious, due to the plant's log tap root. The root is delicious raw or steamed; stem is edible, and the young leaves are tasty steamed or as salad greens (remove the prickles). Even the young thistle heads can be steamed like their relative, the artichoke. Striking green leaves with white veins and 2-inch purple flowers. The seeds also are a favorite food for goldfinches. Vigorous self-seeder. [No shipping to Washington, Oregon]
