Hi all, APOLOGIES for the blurry pic! My friend was wondering what this is growing in her front garden? Many thanks. 😊




a non native called Fox and Cubs. Pilosella aurantiaca. Can become invasive and seeds like dandelions so it has escaped from gardens and is growing wild in many places.

Very pretty though, and I bet the bees love it!

Might be pretty, but as said it is a thug both from running roots and copious seed.

Thanks all - yes, I did wonder myself. Think she may remove this one if it’s a thug! Pennyfarthing, it’s a pretty flower isn’t it, agree on that! 👍

It does tend to attract blackfly as well so yes, best removed (or planted somewhere wild that doesn't get mown...)

Thanks Sue, I think she’ll definitely remove it then.
