Flowering plant in open grassland, within 10 metres of river bank. Other specimens seen nearby in bud or with full seed head. This plant is widespread in this area; often seen in gardens. The dandelion like seed head means it disperses easily over long distances. I believe the root can be eaten as a vegetable.
