A small annual, bearing tiny, deep yellow or light orange-coloured flowers on long, slender, naked stems, that rise from one to fifteen inches in height. The flowers resemble in miniature, those of the Dandelion. They close at night, and when the seed is ripe, they again resemble, on a small scale, the "blow-head" of the latter. Several stems rise from the pretty little circular tuft of long, narrow leaves, and have a remote likeness to those of the Dandelion. They are found from April to August, in dry, sandy soil, from Texas and Florida to Canada.
