A good meadow component with rich yellow flowers and dandelion-like seed heads. Catsear also known as flatweed, cat’s-ear, hairy cat’s ear or false dandelion, Catsear is derived from the words cat’s ear, and refers to the shape and fine hair on the leaves resembling that of the ear of a cat. All parts of the catsear plant are edible; however, the leaves and roots are those most often harvested. The leaves are bland in taste but can be eaten raw in salads, steamed, or used in stir-fries. Older leaves can become tough and fibrous, but younger leaves are suitable for consumption. In contrast to the edible leaves of dandelion, catsear leaves only rarely have some bitterness. The root can be roasted and ground to form a coffee substitute.

Although there is a minimum order requirement of 8 plugs when purchasing specific species, if selecting our Super Plug Bespoke Pack, you can select up to 4 species of your choice from our given list to make up a 16 pack (or greater), allowing you a wider choice of plug species if 8 of one is too many.  Find the link to our Super Plug Bespoke Pack here!

These specimens are available in 8 pack, 16 pack, 32 pack and 48 pack and they're ready to be shipped to you in a few days.  If you need ANY advice on planting or suitable plants for a specific area, please remember that as a Wild Your Garden customer you're entitled to free professional and tailored advice from our founder, Joel.
