I've got two seemingly different yellow flowers in front of the house. They kinda both fit the descriptions for annual and perennial sow thistle. There is some that are larger with 1 inch wide flowers, and other more scraggly ones with branching stalks of 1/4 inch flowers. The big ones went to seed already and made a puffball with long skinny rice-like seeds with the hair-like tuft attached to it. The smaller ones just keep flowering and I am not seeing a puff yet from them.
So do either of these look like either sow thistle? What do you all think?
