Salsify, Bull Canyon

Seed parachutes, ready to fly, and empty seed head.

This is a common roadside weed all across the Chilcotin. The yellow flowers open in the early morning, and close in the afternoon.

(These plants hybridize readily. This could be Western Salsify, Tragopogon dubius, but I am dubious about this because the flowers don't quite match the Wikipedia sample.)

  1. Oh to be a Tragopogon,
    Dindledum of Art Nouveau
    Soft menorah of supplication
    Where fluff-bearing zephyrs go.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
