When is a Cobbler's Peg not a Cobbler's Peg? When it's a Thickhead.
Botanical name is Crassocephalum crepidioides. It's in the daisy family. Seeds are wind dispersed. It's a host for the day-flying Magpie Moth Nyctemera amica. There's no mention of it in Weeds of Southern Queensland and a quick waltz around other likely sites didn't find any mention either.
I'd treat it with caution although it's not toxic, that white sap gives rise to some circumspection when considering a plant's edibleness.
There's a heap of these where I walk.
Geeeeze, Joseph's back yard looks amazingly similar to mine. ---- LOL
We have been using a lot of this plant in our " Fetta and Weed " pie, thus its well cooked.
Flipping through my new Weed Foragers book :D I can't find this one in there either.
That blue flower you photographed at Jerry C-W place is definately Chicory Elaine.
Thanks Lissa :-) Weed Foragers on the way to me - weird these books don't include that Thick Head plant, it's quite common and since James lives to tell the tale, edible too.
Well! Thank you for that very interesting post John :-)
