Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) is a plant that may be seen on verges or hard bare ground. The yellow flowers appear before the leaves and resemble dandelions although the seedhead is smaller. The leaves are large and angular and have the shape of a colt's (or foal's) footprint. The plant is used by herbalists. Can be picked for rabbits.
