Rough hawkbit


Rough Hawkbit is a wildflower of grassland, hay meadows and road verges. Long single stems produce bright yellow dandelion-like flowers lasting from May-October. Following the flowers are  fluffy seed heads which are dispersed by the wind. In open areas the Rough Hawkbit therefore self seeds and spreads. It prefers a sunny position and a well drained soil, being ideal in a cottage garden border or a wildlife meadow and adding a fabulous burst of colour.
