Adding onto Esther’s contribution, burdock and milk thistle are rather common in Flevopark and Anna’s Tuin in Amsterdam Oost, and we also love to eat their roots sauteed in sweet soy sauce or boiled as tea in Korea.
Dandelions, daisies, common yarrow (which has licorice like flavor) and tansies are also common in this neighborhood, and while the first three are completely edible and great in salads, as I research I find that tansy oil is deadly. They look like simpler versions of chamomile to me on the first glance, but one should be wary of them!
