Not technically a wildflower, yet grown by many wild gardeners in their meadows and prairies. All parts of this colorful flower are edible. Flowers are often used in salads and stir-fries, while the buds can be pickled in vinegar and eaten as a condiment. From deep red to yellow, this flower is often planted near vegetable crops, as it repels certain pest insects such as cucumber beetles, squash bugs, and several kinds of caterpillars.
