Came across this heroic specimen on Gubur Dhaura in Franklin. Is it a different species, or is it the magical earth on the hill?

Agreed – a Tragopogon species of some sort. Part of the daisy family.

It’s a daisy, Jim, but not as we know it…

If this is a kind of salsify, does that mean it’s edible? There’s absolutely heaps of this around our way, and if it’s the eating kind I am tempted to go pull some up and try it…but on the other hand I don’t want to be Canberra’s first death’s-head dandelion victim…any vegie growers able to enlighten me?
