Agoseris

by Woodsbum

Here is another yellow flowered, edible plant that can be found all around the PNW. The agoseris is very similar to the dandelion and salsify. It grows in open foothills, mountain slopes and alpine areas. You will find it in grassy or open areas.

The flowers and leaves can be eaten raw or the dried sap from the stem and leaves can be chewed as gum or eaten.

As I progress through these edible plants, I am really beginning to enjoy the diverse foliage that the PNW offers. This is beginning to be quite interesting and enjoyable. If all continues to go well, I might even start gathering things to try while I am out in the woods. That would be a stretch, but it would be quite fun to get to that point.
