Meadow goatsbeard – Tragopogon Orientalis
The large meadow goatsbeard is a herbaceous semi-rosette plant with a strong tap root. It reaches a growth height of up to 70 cm.
The hollow stem is slightly swollen at the top and, like the grassy leaves, glabrous. If injured, white, sticky latex emerges. The numerous yellow ray florets are grouped in capitula up to 7 cm in size, which are surrounded by eight green, pointed bracts.
The stamens are brownish-violet in colour at their tip, creating a speckled impression in the head. The flowered ray florets still protrude from the folded heads like a goatee and give the plant its name.
The flower heads open early in the morning when the sun shines and close again early in the afternoon. The fruits bear parachutes up to 4 cm wide and enable efficient distribution.
