>>2033459 >>2033579 We had a bunch of these growing up. My dad worked with fish and wildlife and said they jokingly referred to them as "damn yellow composites" because there are several dozen species that all look more or less exactly the same.
While we're IDing plants, can anyone tell me what this is? We always just called them "biddy-bids" but there are a number of different plants that get called that here. Basically anything with a burr that gets stuck to your clothes can be a biddy-bid, so I want to know what it really is. It doesn't look like any of the actual classified piripiri, which seem to be mostly shrubs. This is kind of a ground-creeper.
They get the burrs in summer. Later in the season, the burrs go brown and hard and that's when they stick to everything and hurt, but they're soft when they're still green.
>>2033579 probably some kind of Senecio sp, finding the exact species is going to make you rage. >>2033724 looks like Hypericum based on the flower, never seen one with black leaves though so it's probably Hypericum x hidcoteense.
>>2033886 It does have some teeny tiny yellow flowers, not many, but they don't look like the tiny flower clusters on the Black Medick I'm finding on search results, and I can't find anything about burrs.
>>2034018 Here's the whole thing. I think there are others elsewhere on the section, but I'm not sure where. The dog is always picking the burrs up in his tail, though, and if they were only in this one spot, he'd have a harder time of collecting them.
>>2033459 >>2033579 >>2033541 >>2033834 >>2034026 I spent some time attempting to identify it before posting here, but I'm unfamiliar with the terminology and methods and as such was unsuccessful. I did find a few ID sites that gave examples or explained some of the characteristics, but they didn't prove very helpful.
I suppose I'm mainly concerned with it being a weed and possibly threatening the roses, but I've gone through listings of local noxious and invasive weeds and haven't seen anything resembling it close enough.
