Coltsfoot Tussilago farfara grows from an
underground rhizome and the flowers appear before the
leaves. The flowering head has yellow ray florets in
layers which have pistils and produce seeds. In the
centre of the head are a few pollen producing florets
that do not set seed. The stems of Coltsfoot are scaly
and woolly and the leaves are very large. This plant is
often found growing in waste places in Europe and has
also become naturalised in North America.
