Asphodeline lutea

A soft blue mop of grassy leaves (very attractive!) which surprises its owners with a rapid growing ‘rocket’ reaching 3-5′ tall in late spring; this spike expands into dense, lemon yellow, star shaped flowers with a pleasant fragrance, April > June. Sun to light shade, a classic Mediterannean – cool with lavenders, grasses, roses! Needs well drained soil. The buds of the flowers are deliciously edible, steamed with a bit of butter.
