Crepidiastrum denticulata, a
biennial herb found in sunny locations in fields and mountains,
braches well and grows to 0.3-1.2m in height. Stems, in many
individuals, tinge red-purple. Radical leaves have long petioles in
the shape of a spoon and set themselves in crowds, which are
sustainable while in flower. Leaves are alternate, 5-10cm long,
2-5cm wide, oblong, or obovate, with shallow serrations on margins
and bases protruding backward to embrace the stems. Branch tips or
axils on upper parts set about 1.5cm across yellow flower heads.
