 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's flower is another early one that blooms for a while, April through June.  This is Yellow Rocket and is in the Mustard Family.  It originated in Eurasia and was introduced here in colonial times as a garden plant that was used for salads as the taste is similar to a Dandelion.  It is now advised not to eat because it has been associated with Kidney malfunction.  Birds will eat the seeds of this plant.


  1. Lovely shot, Shelly.

  2. Don't think I've heard a plant referred to as Yellow rocket so I suspect our yellow mustard is a different variety
