5 Wildflowers You Can Eat

You can eat the weeds! Some are not safe, so be careful to consult a reliable source before you indulge (not just me!) For this list, I chose some flowering weeds that many will recognize. Do you know them? Have you tried to eat any of them?

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Great article. We have most of these, and grow wild here in Southern California, except for the fern. My favorite is the chicory. I remember in old westerns the cowboys would boil chicory for coffee. Wonder what it tastes like.. Love all the photos, and tidbits of information.

    • That’s too bad! Sometimes you can find dandelion greens at the market. And your local spice dealer may have the dried root, as well as chicory root.

      If carrots grow where you live, then it’s probable that wild carrot does too. Look for it in empty lots or green spaces.
