Description

Taprooted perennial, variable habit, 1.5-12 dm tall.

Leaves mostly basal, from entire to deeply pinnatifid.

Heads ligulate, solitary, long-pedunculate. Flowers yellow. Phyllaries unequal, 3-5 seriate. Pappus scales 5-10, white to yellowish.

Achene 5-6 mm, beakless.[1][2]

Bloom Period

May-July[3]

Distribution

Southern Puget Trough southward, on both sides of Cascades to California.[1]

Habitat

Clay, loam, and rocky soils, grasslands, moist meadows, dried slopes, woodlands.[1]

Uses

Documentation of Pomo use of roots for food.[4]

Seed

Seed sample from: 2011

Average Measurement: 5.6 x 0.8 x 0.8

Measurement Range: L: 4.75 – 7, W: 0.5 – 0.9, D: 0.5 – 0.9

Features

Shape: Seed tubular with puckered hilum.

Additional Structures: Pappus attached at apex opposite hilum. Pappus fibers are attached in a circular pattern around end. Individual hairs are broad at point of attachment, narrowing to a point. Pappus fibers exceptionally broad, somewhat iridescent, and 1/10 – 1/3 as long as seed body.

Color: Hilum white, seed body tan or light brown.

Surface: Seed body has 10 – 15 grooves running longitudinally from hilum to pappus. Hilum is glossy but seed body is smooth and matte
