Evening primrose

Biennial which prefers sun but copes with most soils. The striking yellow flowers are luminous in the evening light.

Edible - boil or pickle roots - they have a sweet parsnip-like taste; use the rest in salads. Stems, leaves and flower buds can also be eaten as a vegetable. The oil is believed to have wide-ranging health benefits and is used in cosmetics.
