The "Kelowna Sunflower", native and very widespread in the dry central interior of BC. They bloom in April, and so are enjoyed only by the locals. The hoards of tourists that arrive in summer are completely unaware of them. Drought tolerant, prefers dry stony or sandy soil. All parts are edible. Roots and leaves can be steamed; seeds resemble sunflower seeds.
