Coastal Groundsel

Coastal Groundsel 1

There is plenty of this Coastal Groundsel (Senecio maritimus) flowering at Lake Claremont at present, and also on Buckland Hill.

Coastal Groundsel 2

It looks very similar to Variable Groundsel, but is reportedly recognisable by its “undivided, coarsely lobed or dentate leaves” (not “narrow” as for Variable Groundsel).

Many of the flower heads are already going to seed, although the flowering season is supposed to be July to December.
