Pilosella aurantica

I have already described this plant in the "Belfast Garden" article. Orange dandelion like flowers emerging from black hairy buds at the top of a green hairy stem. Sounds mad, but it is a superb plant, spreading in habit, but easily dealt with as the roots run along the soil surface. Enough just to show a close up. See the photos of the garden this year (to be posted on the web site in late November) to see the plant in all its glory.
