Salsify or Goatsbeard or Oyster plant
Heliotropes follow the sun. Sunflowers are heliotropes, and to a certain extent, salsify is, also. Since I'm not home during the day, I'm not really sure, LOL
I love these guys, they are tough as nails and good-looking to boot. You can find information on eating their roots, too. I have not tried this yet, although since the drought started, I'm seeing quite a number of salsify. Maybe just by comparison, I don't know.
