Artist's Description

The Greater burdock, Edible burdock, or Lappa Burdock is native to the temperate regions of the old world, from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, and from the British Isles through Russia, and the Middle East to China and Japan, including India.

At its various developmental stages practically all parts of this large weed are edible. Widely used in Japan in a variety of “gobo” dishes. In the last fifty years or so the plant due to the increasing popularity of the so called macrobiotic low calorie diet its importance is increasing.

In traditional Chinese herbal medicine the plant is used as a diuretic, diaphoretic, and a blood purifying agent.
