Hieracium floribundum is a herbaceous perennial characterised by numerous horizontal runners and a rhizome in the ground. A native of Europe, it belongs to a genus that includes hundreds of species established in most temperate and mountainous areas in the tropics. H. floribundum is found in meadows or along paths and can compete with native species. Its invasion potential is linked to its ability to produce seeds without sexual reproduction and its ability to reproduce vegetatively.
