DistributionMountains and upper Piedmont.

N.S. to southern Ont., south to northern GA and AL.
AbundanceFairly common to common in the Mountains, but generally infrequent in the western Piedmont, mainly in the foothills.
HabitatDry to mesic forests and woodlands, especially where disturbed, such as logging roads, trailsides, wooded borders.
PhenologyFlowering and fruiting July-October.
IdentificationMost stems grow 2-4 feet tall, with numerous, thin-textured, glabrate, irregularly blunt-toothed, leaves that reach into the inflorescence. The inflorescence is very open and broad, the heads on long, slender, and often curving branches. The numerous thin-textured leaves and very open inflorescence are unlike our other Hieracium species, but as with the others the numerous flowers have ray florets only and are yellow in color.
