Edible roots and stalks, but you won’t want to eat them because they are too pretty! Their large, spiny gray-green leaves are quite ornamental, especially in urns. Especially useful for no-till organic gardens where soil needs to be broken up by vigorous roots. This is a super cool, must have plant.
