Hieracium sp.


A unique kind of desert plant adorning the fence in our yard. As you can see by a couple of the shots, it is surrounded by small spines typical of the many fauna of the Sonoran desert.


Growing in a weedlike fashion, i.e. everywhere!


Any help on the ID would be wonderful. I've been able to figure out that it's in the genus Crepis, then figured out it wasn't due to being in the wrong range (i.e. not in Pima County, Arizona), so then genus Hieracium came along, where I have some possible candidates: carneum, fendleri, fendleri var. discolor, lemmonii, and rusby. Any help with identification would be amazing!
