Autumn Hawkbit Plug Plants Scorzoneroides autumnalis
Common names include autumn dandelion, fall dandelion, fall hawkbit.
This attractive short perennial wildflower is the most common of our native hawkbits and produces yellow dandelion-like flowers between July and October. It looks very pretty growing in a meadow or a wildflower lawn.
Happy on a range of soil types, it is well suited to fertile soils and looks good growing alongside other low-growing native plants such as bird's-foot trefoil.
One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, autumn hawkbit is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects. The seeds are a good food source for birds such as finches.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
