Note:   I am not an expert in the identification of plants and you should 
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES rely upon any of these images to identify 
edible, toxic or medicinal plants. If I have identified a plant
inaccurately,  please let me know so that the descriptions may be corrected.  

Tragopogon dubius is commonly known as “Western Goat’s Beard, Yellow Salsify, Western Salsify” or “Wild Oysterplant” and is a member of the Asteraceae Family.   This plant is considered an invasive weed in many areas.  It does not, however, seem to have a great negative economic impact.  The taproot is said to be edible and that was the reason it was originally imported into the US. 

The flower is reminiscent of a Dandelion.  Notice that the bracts are longer than the pale yellow flowers? The flowers of this plant open on sunny mornings and close by the afternoon.  The seed heads look like dandelion plumes but is much larger.

This species reproduces by seed and grows in pastures and meadows.  It particularly likes my flower garden and since I think the flower is quite pretty, we have a mutual admiration for one another and live together in harmony.

This species may be mistaken for Meadow Goat’s Beard, however, that species has bracts that are as long as or shorter than the florets.

It is also mistaken for the Yellow Goat's Beard.  The differences between the two are that the latter has darker yellow flower heads with 8 floral bracts that extend to the outer margin of the flower head while the Western Goat's Beard has pale yellow flowers and 13 floral bracts that extend considerably beyond the flower head.
