Cat's Ear Plug Plants Hypochaeris radicata
Common names include catsear, hairy cat's ear and false dandelion.
A native perennial wildflower with yellow dandelion-like flowers, cat's ear grows best in well-drained grasslands and can be commonly seen in grassy areas, short turf and roadside verges. This low-growing edible herb is an ideal addition to your wildflower meadow or garden.
It is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects and is one of the RHS Plants for Pollinators.
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.
