This month’s plant is an annual
with alternate, odd-shaped leaves
and yellow Dandelionlike flowers.
The leaves are oval shaped at the tip
becoming toothed or lobed
with gradually smaller teeth and lobes
as they progress toward the petiole.
The flowering stems are
topped by a single yellow flower
with 10-12 rays.
The leaves exude
a milky juice when cut.
This plant blooms from
mid-June through September.
