Nipplewort?

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Nipplewort?

Post by Stevef » 16 Apr 2018, 22:07

Good evening all.
With today one of the first glimpses of a spring day i ventured into the garden for forage. I found a nice abundance of this weed which at first i thought to be a sow thistle. On closer inspection i now believe it to be nipplewort.
As paranoid as i am, would someone please confirm or correct my assumptions?

Thanks
Steve
