Hieracium paniculatum Linnaeus. Leafy Hawkweed. Phen: Jul-Oct. Hab: Dry to mesic forests, especially along dirt roads. Dist: NS and QC west to MN, south to w. NC, n. GA, and OH.

ID notes: The leafy stem and lack of basal leaves of H. paniculatum readily distinguish it from our other species of Hieracium. In fact, it often puzzles the inexperienced botanist, who may overlook the possibility that this plant is a Hieracium! The milky sap and obscure teeth on the leaves are good corroborative characters.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Syn: = C, F, FNA19, G, K1, K3, K4, Mi, NE, Oh3, Pa, RAB, S, SE1, Tn, Va, W, WV
