Salsify Fly (12/23/2010) Salsify (Goatsbeard - Tragopogon dubius (yellow) or Oyster Plant - Tragopogon porrifolius (purple)) is often called the giant dandelion and they are in the same family. This collection of seeds is arranged to show what most of us remember most about these plants, but the flowers themselves are quite striking, particularly the purple Salsify. Even though this piece is labeled Salsify, it is more likely the Goatsbeard. Both are native to Europe.
