Burdock040801_01.jpg


Common Burdock (Arctium Minus)

has large, soft, fuzzy leaves that make excellent emergency TP. so it's natural "mountain money". :D

i've used it on occasion when hiking, even when i had TP packed.

i know it can be found in the Sierra Nevadas and Coastal Range, not sure where else it's native too, but i think it grows almost every where.

the pic was googled up, but not the info. :rolleyes: i just thought it made for a better story than other plants i've used or eaten.

The leave aren't the only useful part. The root is also edible. Pretty popular in Asia. They make it sort of like a slaw. I've never eaten any of the wild stuff but the burdock I have eaten tasted pretty good.
