Bristly hawkbit (Leontodon hispidus ssp. hispidus)

The stiff-haired bristly hawkbit (Leontodon hispidus) is a plant-type from the type Leontodon (dandelion). The plant is persistent, with an oblique to horizontal rootstock.

The stem leaves are united in basal rosettes and with very differently shaped leaf edges. There are leaves that are only remotely toothed or cut to varying depths, as well as pinnate leaves.

The unbranched, shaft-like, up to 50 cm high, firm stem carries up to 2 scale-shaped bracts (in contrast to dandelion/Taraxacum with easily compressible and completely leafless stem) and at the end a flower basket with yellow ray florets.
