edible golden alexanders

Yellow flowers. Each flower is tiny, 3 millimeters long with five sepals, five petals, and five stamens. Each flower produces a little oblong fruit capsule, which contain a brown seed. In the fall, the fruit and leaves turn purple. The flower clusters with the main stem removed are added to salads, or they make a delicious cooked vegetable reminiscent of broccoli.
