Goat's Beard Tragopogon dubius
If you seen some super sized dandelion like white fluffs along a country road , your probably looking at Goat's Beard.
Its gets 2 1/2 ft tall with a beautiful yellow flower. Then when its time for it to go to seed its a whole new look like this photo, It truly is beautiful.
I don't have this growing on the homestead yet, but saved the seeds for next season. I may try some winter sowing on the seeds as well.
The name dubius is Latin meaning "doubtful" because the plant was long mistaken for another species.
