Main page Habit Foliage Flowers

Nipplewort (Lapsana communis) initially forms small rosettes.

Rosettes are typically 6 to 8 inches in diameter.

Plants bolt in early summer and grow in a columnar habit.

Plants grow to 2 or 3 feet tall, and often in large groups as seen below.

Flowers grow in terminal clusters. Foliage is more sparse closer to the terminal end of flowering branches.
