WILD SEDUM ~ ANOTHER TASTY WILD EDIBLE WAKES UP FROM WINTER SLUMBER.
Also called purple orpine, this native perennial of Europe (scientifically referred to as Hylotelephium telephium) is now naturalized in Eastern North America. Its fleshy, moist, succulent leaves make a refreshing mild tasting salad green. I like to mix it with other more poignant leaves (mustards, sorrels, etc). It’s interesting to note that over the years some people do not like eating this plant, but I can’t recall why. This image of the shoots just emerging is what we see right now.
