Leontodon hispidus, or Rough Hawkbit has cheerful yellow flowers which make a charming contribution to a wildflower planting, and play host to a number of butterflies and valuable nectar-feeding pollinators, including various species of bee. In attracting a rich supply of insects, this classic meadow plant provides a valuable food source for garden birds. Traditional herbalists once used infusions of Hawkbit to treat jaundice, and the roots used to be roasted and ground as a substitute for coffee. The young foliage can add flavour and texture to a salad.
