Coltsfoot

A yellow flower with with many petals. One of the first blooming plants in Quebec in spring. Blooms before the leaves appear.

How to Identify?

To identify this species I rely on the color yellow, that the flower has many petals, and that the flower appears before leaves are grown.

We combine physical characterics and behavior patterns with location and seasonal aspects to identify species.

Where & When to Spot?

One of the first flower in April along roads and pathways on sandy ground.

With each photo, we store date and geo-location providing us data about location and season of observation. We also use a tracking utility to save observations in the field when there was no opportunity to take a good shot.

Anything to add, to correct?
