Lapsana apogonoides / Koonitabirako コオニタビラコ

Lapsana apogonoides, an annual/biennial herb, grows on roadsides or corners of parks or yards, occasionally in colonies. The whole feels somewhat soft, with some fine hairs. Radical leaves lay themselves in a rosette way, measuring 8-25cm in length, 1.7-6cm in width, and deeply cut in a lyrate way; terminal lobes are triangular-ovate, with tips round. On-stem leaves on lower parts are somewhat pointed, and those on upperparts are fewer in number and smaller, tinging a bit brown-purple. Stem tips bear 7-8mm-across yellow flowers in a caribous way. Bloom time: May-October.
