    Agreed. It's considered a weed out our way but not a terribly invasive one.

    Looking at the video, it looks like Nipplewort "Lapsana communis" or Cat's Ear "Hypochaeris radicata" - I'm leaning towards the latter.

    Try looking up "bastard cabbage" and comparing yours to the pictures. It has been named a serious invasive here in Texas, and has spread to about 12 states.

    I believe it is from the brassica family.

    No, thank goodness it is not bastard cabbage, the seed description is different from what I have here. thanks for the reply.

    No, if you notice the petals on my plant are wider and straight across at the tip with serrations on the end.

    It's Youngia japonica, called Youngia or Asiatic hawk’s beard. Highly invasive! You do not want to let this reseeding annual get a foothold on your property.

    Thanks so much Walliebee, I'll take care of that right away. I have found several more plants in my yard now.

    Hawk's beard is edible......Why wouldn't you want it to get a foothold?? I just eat the ones that sprout in my yard. Throw it on a burger or in a salad.

    Edit: (Eat the leaves, and only until they get tough and nasty.)
