Description

There are 70 species of Crepis in Europe alone. Crepis leaves sit in spirals along the stems, often lobed, with lobes pointed downwards. The stems are normally branched. Flowers consist of only ray florets. Underneath the flower the bracts are in 2 rows covered in black hairs, the outer row being the smaller, the inner row, long and pointed.

The stem of Crepis nicaeensis is hairy, branching from the middle upwards. The outer bracts are shorter, giving the bracts a striped effect when the flower is in bud.
