Wild and Weedy

These bright yellow flowers bloom along roadsides everywhere around here. Have been for weeks. This is by the Pomahaka River at Conical Hill, West Otago. New Zealand. I assume they’re hieracium (hawkweed). Photos taken 19 Feb 2021.

  1. This certainly resembles our hawkweed. I know we have a couple of native species, but I’ve only seen the introduced Japanese hawkweed, which is pretty enough, but a real pest. And I’ve never seen so many together. Perhaps the natives are as prolific as these where they grow.
