Youngia japonica / Onitabirako オニタビラコ

Youngia japonica is an annual or biennial herb found on roadsides, in parks, or on corners of gardens. The whole is soft, with hairs, and cutting stems or leaves lead white milk to discharge. Radical leaves arrange themselves in rosettes, 8-25cm long, 1.7-6cm wide, and pinnately deeply cleft in lobes. The terminal one is triangular-ovate with round tips. On-stem leaves are relatively pointed at lower parts, while upper-part leaves are fewer in number and more minor. Stem tips set 7-8mm-in-diameter yellow flower heads in a corymb way. Bloom time: May-October.
