Caraway carvi

Considered a biennial in Alberta as we do not have a long enough growing season for it to produce seed first year.  All parts of the plant are edible, young leaves can be used in salads, the roots can be treated like carrots, and of course the seeds are used in baking.

Oenothera biennis - lemon scented

This is a favorite in the garden for the wonderful lemony scent it gives off.  It doesn't seem to be too invasive in Zone 3, however the deer do like it and they get to it long before it has a chance to self seed.

Oenothera biennis - wild collected

We found this in the wild this past year.  It does not have the sweet lemon scent that our other Oenothera has.  I could be wrong, but I believe this plant's blooms were more of butter yellow.

Onopordum acanthium

Warning:  Do not purchase unless you are prepared to grow these responsibly! 

What a magnificant plant.  Massive grey green fuzzy / woolly leaves.  Would make a fantastic hedge and I've read that they do, only then they're considered a noxious weed.   First year will only put out a rosette of leaves, growing to about 60 cm, will bloom second year.
