Yellow Goats Beard

Yellow Goat's Beard! Also called Western Salsify. This flower resembles a very large Dandelion when it goes to seed.

Native to western Asia and to Europe. Introduced and naturalized in North America.  Found often along roadside, disturbed sites and most often in full sun.

I've seen this flower throughout Minnesota and right here in my backyard.  According to the USDA site the Yellow Goat's Beard can be found in most to states, minus a few, and the Canadian Providences.

The blooming season is generally April to July and occasionally continues until September.

This is plant is part of my Facebook series Learn Something Country .  #learnsomethingcounty
