Wall Lettuce

 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Wall Lettuce
  • Latin Name: Mycelis muralis, syn. Lactuca muralis
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae
Wall Lettuce has leaves that are sometimes mistaken for those of Sowthistle, but it has a more open habit, and its yellow flowers have only five petals, each with a slightly ragged end, and they are borne on thin wiry stems.

It is a suitable addition to the tortoise diet and will readily seed itself in your garden if some flowers are allowed to remain on the plant.
