TQ3207 : Salsify

taken 8 years ago, near to Moulsecoomb, Brighton And Hove, Great Britain

Nearby allotments may have attributed to the spread of this colourful plant. Salsify is in the Goat's-beard family and like its cousin, closes up at midday. The plant is often cultivated on allotments where the roots can be eaten as a vegetable. Eighty plants appear on the north bank of Hollingdean Park soccer pitch, and many more in the set-aside field 200 yards to the NE.
