Yam Daisy

Microseris scapigera spp. agg.

General Description: An erect, perennial herb to 40 cm tall with large, nodding, yellow, ‘dandelion’ flower head at end of a leafless stem and shiny long narrow toothed leaves.

Flowers and Fruit: Single bright yellow daisy flower-head on a stalk from July to November. Fruit consists of fluffy white seed heads (similar to a dandelion but less fluffy looking).

Life Span: Regenerates annually from a fleshy tuberous root.

Wildlife Value: The flowers produce nectar for butterflies and its tubers can be eaten.

Other Values and Uses: The tuberous rootstock was a staple part of the aboriginal diet.Tubers were eaten raw or cooked in baskets and were an important food source.

Other Scientific Names: Microseris aff. lanceolata (Foothills)

Other Common Names: Foothill Yam-daisy, Murrnong (Koorie name), Yam-daisy, Native Dandelion
