Valerianella radiata

Valerianaceae

Valerianella radiata is an herbaceous annual that grows around a foot tall. It's a native relative of the European corn salad (V. locusta) which is an old-fashioned herb cultivated for its leaves, eaten fresh in salads. I suppose you could do the same with our native corn salad.
