Is this edible? I'm wondering about the peculiar name.

I have this too, but it's not flowering yet....quite. This is a wonderful time of year in the garden...I love it! :)

Bathgate, sorry don't know, maybe edible if you're a goat, but they will eat anything.
I like this time of the year too Karen, particularly when it's sunny, as today.

Grows to about 4 ft, but it's an airy plant. The one in the pic is only a seedling, next to Persicaria, Purple Fantasy.
