This weed is in fact a wild plant/flower like Daisy and Dandelion. I learnt that its leaves and seeds are edible to eat as raw or cooked. But, I never tested it and never will, I rather eat vegetables instead which taste better and I know that the vegetables cause no harm. I also learnt that this plant can also be used for making medicines.

This plant is a perennial growing plant and it is classified as weed because it grows wrong place where we don’t want it.
