Central and eastern Europe
Yellow hawkweed species can be found throughout the Columbia-Shuswap region.
Yellow hawkweed has a small cluster of yellow dandelion-like flowers near the end of the stem. The leaves form at the base and are long and narrow and slightly hairy on both sides.
The best control is prevention and early action.
For recommended control methods please visit this resource from ISCBC.
There are native yellow hawkweeds in BC as well but none of the native varieties will produce stolons (stems/ runners produced at the surface running horizontally to connect plants).
