Any ideas? Just took this yesterday, 4/7/2002, in Central Ohio. They dotted the hillside in the woods, probably get part sun where they were.
Is it something in the carnation family? The stems remind me of them. I have a dianthus plant with one little bud on it already, so I guess it's possible!
it looks very like Coltsfoot which is a spring flower here. The flowers grow before the leaves. does it have scales, actually bracts, along the flowering stem? I dont know it's worldwide distribution.
The latin name is Tussilago farfara
Yup - I'd say coltsfoot too. We have plenty of it here.
yeah coltsfoot flowers come before the large leaves and there's no leaves visable yet there.
Gardenwife, yes that's Tussilago (leskenlehti).. they're in full bloom here in S-Finland now.
