If you're lost in the woods in August...

You will survive! Just dig up the tubers of Apios Americana...they can be eaten raw or cooked and are quite similar to potatoes...but have 3 times the protein. I feel I've hit the jackpot with this plant: widely eaten by many American Indian tribes and quickly adopted by settlers, too. As an owner of "Stalking the Wild Asparagus" I have been so disappointed to find so few edible wildflowers. Success at last and a big Thank You to Floraquebeca for correcting my ID on the original photo


  1. I don't remember ever seeing these! Beautiful color, and the growing habit is so graceful...thank you, Jeanette! I'll be on the lookout.

  2. A plant that is beautiful AND edible, definitely the jackpot! You've rendered this beautifully; I especially like those mug shots of the flower!

  3. I always enjoy your layouts - informative, creative and beautiful.


We'd love to hear from you, your questions, comments, observations! Please feel free to comment, feedback is important to us.
