Coltsfoot with its striking yellow flower is one of the first flowering plants to be seen after winter. In some places you can find coltsfoot as early as February. This plant is best known for its medicinal properties and has a long tradition in folk medicine – especially its soothing effects on coughs. Tea or syrup is usually made from the flowers but some parts, as leaves are also edible and used in the kitchen.
