This Native American wildflower has a  habitat range from California to Chile. The flower stalks are 3-4 feet tall. The 5-inch flower spike is full of tiny yellow flowers. The base is a dark green cluster of small oval leaves. The historical uses of this plant include using the seeds as a rich source of protein and a very high-quality oil which was extracted by boiling. The whole plant is sticky and is sweet-smelling.  Europeans have been extracting the oil for some time and it is comparable to Olive Oil in taste and nutrition. This plant thrives in poor rocky soils with a minimum of water, which only increases the oil content. Easy to grow, direct seed in mid-spring and cover lightly. Our bed self- seeds and overwinters creating an excellent ground cover and weed barrier. The sticky surface traps garden pests like fruit flies. There is great potential for oil production using this plant.
