Yellow Composites

The yellow-flowered members of the Asteraceae family are ubiquitous: dandelions (Taraxacum), coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), hawkweeds (Hieracium), lettuces (Lactuca), sow-thistles (Sonchus), sunflowers (Helianthus), and more. But they can be confusing to differentiate! Through a visual presentation, herbarium specimens, and a field excursion, you will learn many of the yellow-flowered members of the composite family in New England, the key field features that distinguish them, and the different habitats in which they occur.
