Found all around the world's temperate regions and native to Europe and Asia, this very common and well-recognized member of the chicory and aster family is usually known as a weed, pest, or and nuisance. To others it is an important medicinal plant, edible green, and reminder of springtime and summer. This one was found growing in an old coniferous forest with a patch of open ground in Enumclaw, Washington.
