There is the tragopogon,1 also, by some called "come;" a plant with a small stem, leaves like those of saffron, an elongated, sweet, root, and a large, swarthy calyx at the extremity of the stem. It grows in rugged soils, and is never used.

1 "Goat's-beard. Probably the Tragopogon crocifolium of Linnæus, the Saffron-leaved goat's beard. Though its properties are not inert, it is never used in medicine.
