  • Common Name: Nipplewort
  • Latin Name: Lapsana communis
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae
The summer flowering Nipplewort is a familiar sight, as it often pops up in gardens as well as being common in the wild.  It is fine to include in the tortoise diet, and is a great favourite.  The flowers of Nipplewort are much
smaller and more delicate than most of the other daisy-like yellow flowers that are so common amongst weeds, but it can sometimes be confused with the new growth of Smooth Sow Thistle.
