Yellow #2

Velvet Groundsel

Velvet Groundsel

Along the roadsides of the Waitakeres, clusters of yellow flowers herald the impending spring. They are Velvet Groundsel (Roldana petasitis), and they are classified as a weed (invasive). The leaves are furry, and the stems and buds have lovely purple tones.

    The council made us get rid of all the weeds on our block but it is an ongoing effort.
