I 've grown these as a vegetable. I 've found these special tasty for an exotic stir-frying dish in good oil with a little seasoning. I 've used the leaves and soft stems of young plants...you can also take some of the young flowerbuds too. The yellow flowers are pretty and give good cutflowers for in a vase. In my zone they 're not hardy. It is said that skin contact with some members of this genus can cause dermatitis or other allergic reactions in some people...but in my experience I 've noticed none of this...although I 'm a very skin sensitive person.
