Coltsfoot - 18
(Coltsfoot - 18) Another very interesting characteristic of the coltsfoot that differs from other composite flowers is that the disc flowers begin to bloom before the ray flowers completely open.  With most other composite flowers of the Aster family, the ray flowers open first.  Each tiny disc flower has five petals and one pistil.  From this photo we cannot determine the number of stamens.
