History, uses and notes:
The myriad of yellow, dandelion type flowers can be difficult to distinguish and Rough Hawkbit is a short hairy stemmed pollinator with a slight bulb at the top of the stem.
All the hawkweed types smell strongly and sweetly of honey when expanded in the full sunshine. Rough Hawkbit is a liitle bit of a slow grower and can get outdone in very good soil, with a lot of competition.
Flowering from June, right through to early autumn, Rough Hawkbit will help bring #bringthebeesback
