It is listed as a noxious weed. I mean, try grazing a cow in this pasture.
Still, who defines these things? Not the lettuce plants that grow better in the cooling microclimate below these flowers. Not the tomatoes that are more productive beneath them. Not the carrots (a selected subspecies) and onions which grow with fewer pests because of the predatory wasps that come to pollinate these flowers. Certainly not the wasp (left) and ladybug (right) below.
Maybe it’s not all about cows.
