The fresh buds, flowers, and stems can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves are edible but somewhat bitter; they are best when cooked in two changes of water. The mature leaves also can be dried, burned, and used as a salt substitute. The root can be cooked like a vegetable. The flowers are used in wine making.
