Florida Betony

10 Aug

Once this plant gets in your garden it is all but impossible to eliminate. If allowed to grow it does have pretty spring flowers. It dies down in the heat of summer to appear again winter thru spring. The underground white tubers are edible. Eaten raw, the tubers have a radish-like flavor. Cooked, they add a peppery taste to soups & stews.
