Flowers are bright yellow with stamens showing prominently. No petiole, flowers appear to bloom directly on stalk of plant.
Leaves appear to be hastate. This is the only flower I've seen like this on the river and it looks like it's definitely bolted. Maybe the drought conditions are forcing it to bloom very early?
