Yellow Daisy-like Weed, help ID please?

ghartMay 6, 2009

This daisy-like weed is growing in the middle of my lawn. I just want to ID it so I know if I want to get rid of it or transplant it into one of my gardens.

Description: The flower looks a little like a daisy, it is all yellow, but is only about 1/2 inch across. The flowers bloom in a small group of 6 or so at the end of a long, mostly leaf-less stem about 16-20 inches tall. The base is a leafy mass with buzz-saw like leaves that grow to about 2 inches long. This plant is growing in a small mass, all clumped together in my lawn.

Here's one that shows the flower detail. It's a pretty flower, but it's in my lawn!

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Also looks like prairie groundsel, Packera plattensis?

Correct, both Senecio plattensis and S.aureus are now Packera plattensis and P.aurea
I beieve the plant is P.aurea -- look at the basal leaves clearly seen on "Yellow weed pt2" link above. Compare them to plattensis/aurea basal leaves (more images could be found under the old name -- Senecio aureus).

LOL. Sorry, I entered that last one "tongue in cheek." Won't do it again! Sometimes our nomenclature deserves a tweak in the...bud.

My yellow weed is low, daisy-like flowers w/ 7-8 petals. Very short plants. Leaves shiny and similar in shape to violet leaves. Help! They started in my boggy back yard and are overtaking everything! I've dug them up and they have ball-like bulblets growing on the roots.
How can I get rid of them?
