Tragopogon dubius, also known as yellow salsify, western goatsbeard or western salsify, is a species of salsify native to southern and central Europe and western Asia. It grows as an annual or biennial forb, reaching up to 2 ft in height, with a yellow flower head that blooms in late spring or early summer. The plant is commonly found in warm, sheltered places with moist soil. Yellow salsify is similar to meadow salsify, but its bracts are longer and more noticeable. It is regarded as edible, with the root and young stems being used raw or cooked. Yellow salsify is also present in both unburned and burned plots, persisting with low abundance on older, 8- to 30-year-old, burned sites. Its abundance rarely increases or decreases significantly due to fire. Yellow salsify has several alternative common names, including wild oysterplant, meadow goat's beard and common salsify.
