My favourites are dandelion, salsify, sarsparilla and a Sydney native you probably never saw before, gymea lily (Doryanthes excelsa).

I’ve harvested valerian, echinacea, and ashwagandha roots so far. Goldenrod (whole plant) is next.

Amazing. I'm very new to gardening and am beginning slowly due to time and physical limitations. A group that I belong to is very interested in interacting with and healing from the plant world. We haven't quite started on it yet, but your articles will be very useful. One thing I've noticed this late summer season is the beautiful flowers that I think qualify as weeds, but I really enjoy them. Thanks for the expansive knowledge base you communicate here on substack. 💕
