Hawkbits (Leontodon spp. and Scorzoneroides spp.) are dandelion-like flowers in the family Asteraceae (Compositae). Their English name derives from the mediÃ¦val belief that hawks ate the plant to improve their eyesight. Although originally native to Eurasia and North Africa, they have since become established in other countries, including the United States and New Zealand.
