The Most Beautiful of them all . . . !

Jeg har et ‘ugress’ i hagen. Ja, jeg er ikke engang sikker på om dette er et ugress eller om det er en hageplante som har spredd seg med vinden, men – den har tatt bolig i vår hage! Og den sprer seg! Hvilket skulle indikere at den trives der den vokser nå?
Det er lett å gå forbi. (Bare et ugress!) Men – tar man seg tid til å sitte ned og beundre denne lille skjønnheten, så er det få andre planter som kan overgå den i farger eller skjønnhet! Problemet er at jeg ikke aner hva den heter?  Ser man på støvbærere, så kan det virke som den tilhører løvetann-familien, men – bladverket  og stengel er helt annerledes?
Er det noen der ute som kjenner denne planten ved navn?
I have a weed in our garden! Well, I’m not even sure it’s a weed? It might – for all I know  – be a garden plant that have spread by the wind? But now it has taken to our garden and it does spread – which would indicate that i thrives where it’s now growing ?
It’s easy to bypass? (Only a weed! ) But – if you take the time to sitt down to admire this marvellous little beauty, it’s also easy to be taken in! There are really not many that might surpass this flower when it comes to colors and beauty?!
My little problem is that I have no idea what-so-ever what it’s named or where it came from?  Looking at it’s pistils there might be a resemblance to that of dandelions, however the foilage and the stalk/stem is quite different!
Are there anyone out there that recognize this plant?
Jeg vedlegger et ekstra bilde som viser mer av selve planten. Den kan komme med en enkel blomst, eller den kan komme med en helt klase – som her.

I enclose an extra picture showing somewhat more of thiss plant. It may grow with a single flower or it may grow with a cluster – like here!

    Hawkweed is considered an invasive plant or noxious weed in western Canada.

      Hi, Verle!
      You don’t say?! Well I have a couple of dozen flowers in my garden, and they’ve been there for years.
      As long as they don’t invade places where I don’t want them to be, they have my blessing! 🙂
      It might be different if one is a farmer with large fields of grain etc?

    If this is a weed, it is beautiful. I don’t really know many names, but even the dandelion is beautiful with its’ yellow bloom.

    • Seenorway says:

      I think far out there must be a relation. There are definitive resemblances!
      And I’ve got the name now.In Norwegian: ‘Rød Sveve’, but I haven’t found the English name yet?
      And just as I was writing your answer, I did:
      Orange Hawkweed!!!

      • utesmile says:

        I haven’t heard of that name, but it says weed in the name…..shame.

        • Seenorway says:

          Yes, it is! I think it’s main problem is the size? (Less than an inch across) And people like us that don’t take the time to study details, but at least now there are a few more that have discovered this little beauty?!

    I have it too in my gareden, and loveit a lot, as the bees do: it is Orange-red Hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum, Pilosella aurantiaca).

    It is beautiful! Gorgeous vivid colors and I love the lacy look of the tips of the petals. I think I found it –

    • Seenorway says:

      I followed your lead, Eugenia, and there it was – spot on!
      However, this site is too advanced for me! Tried to click the picture in order to get the name, but no way! National secret, I guess!
      The picture was perfect and recognizable, but how difficult may it be to insert the names?
