This plant is a tall flowering herb with yellow flower s which open at night and give off a lovely scent. It is pollinated by moths and night flying bees. It does very well in poor soils and in low rainfall but will grow anywhere if competition from other plants is not to strong. It is good for colonising bare ground. The young roots can be eaten like a vegetable (with a delicious peppery flavor), and the shoots can be eaten as a salad. The seeds contain a high level of oils which have been found to have great benefit. The mature seeds contain approximately 7-10% gamma-linolenic acid, a fatty acid. The oil also contains around 70% linoleic acid. Gamma-linolenic acid shows promise against breast cancer Scatter seeds on lightly tilled soil in the garden and keep moist until germination occurrs, usually in 15-21 days.
