Hawkweed is the common name given to plants of the genus Hieracium, in the sunflower family (Asteraceae). They are common perennials, occurring worldwide . They are usually small and weedy. Only a few are ornamental plants. Most are considered to be troublesome weeds. They grow to 5–100 cm tall, and feature clusters of yellow, orange or red flower heads, similar to dandelions, atop a long, fuzzy stalk.

  1. U nas też faktycznie rosną i dla mnie rosnąc na łąkach, są ich piękną ozdobą. Pozdrawiam.
    We also actually grow and for me to grow in the meadows, they are beautiful decoration. Yours.

  2. Very pretty weeds.

    Visiting from MYM. Here are some Yellows at our Paddle Boats adventure. Have a nice week ahead.

  3. Am not sure we have these hawk weeds here, since they can get so tall (I still measure in cm. and meters!) Have a great week!
