LEAST LETTUCE (Lactuca saligna (Asteraceae) Height to 1m. Slender annual that is easy to overlook when its flower heads are not open; frustratingly, this happens only on sunny days, between around 9 and 11am. The flower heads themselves are yellow, around 1cm across and are borne at intervals up the stem (July-Aug). Least Lettuce grows on dry ground near the sea and is found locally along the north Kent marshes and Rye Harbour in Sussex.
