Transformational Gardening

Disclaimer: Foraging can be fun, rewarding and provide health benefits. As a novice forager, I will be sharing my foraging experiences. However, in order to be safe, always consult with local foraging experts and guidebooks before beginning foraging. Children should learn to forage safely by being guided by experienced adults. Never ingest anything unless you are certain of the identification and safety of the plant. Some plant species are inedible and some are poisonous.

Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum): Images

Date Location Notes Images
May 27, 2010 Southeastern, New Hampshire This plant is very similar to Meadow/Yellow Hawkweed, but the flower is bright orange with a yellow center. Notice in the pictures how extremely hairy the stem and the upper and lower surface of the leaves are. You can see that the leaves are untoothed and unlobed -- not like dandelion leaves at all (except that they do grow in a rosette).
