Youngia japonica

Youngia japonica
oriental false hawksbeard
Synonym(s) Crepis japonica
Common name oriental false hawksbeard
Family asteracaee
Life cycle
Flowers yellow
Light sun-shade

Small dandelion-like flowers held on tall stalks above a rosette of irregularly shaped leaves. After flowing, sets fluffy seed somewhere between those of groundsel and dandelion. This is reportedly getting to be an invasive weed in suburban areas. We see it frequently in our garden, both in borders and in the lawn, but so far it doesn't spread aggressively, and is easy to pull.
