[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the leaf/stem growth stage for Tragopon longirostris, this capture was taken around the first week of March. The flowering stage for this particular one is around the third week of March. The Cyclamen at the base are an added bonus! I am posting a workshop for a different POV.


Tragopogon, also known as salsify or goatsbeard, is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family Asteraceae that has over 140 species, including the vegetable known as salsify, as well as a number of common wild flowers, some of which are usually regarded as weeds.

Salsifies are forbs growing as biennial or perennial plants. They have a strong taproot and milky sap. They generally have few branches, and those there are tend to be upright. Their leaves are somewhat grass-like. Flower color varies within the genus, with some yellow species, and some bronze or purple. Seeds are borne in a globe like that of a dandelion but larger, and are dispersed by the wind.
