Day 6 – UH Foraging Challenge

Wallflower (Erysimum)
Wallflower (Erysimum sp.)

This was the closest I could get to orange flowers today as I wandered the Amsterdam King’s Day street market. Perennial wallflowers look bright and cheerful and are edible (depending upon their location of course). They belong to the cabbage family (Brassicacea).

So, what have the challengers been finding? Here’s another lovely plant record from Hannah McDonald showing hollyhock, rosemary and plantain.
