Puccoon is in the Boraginaceae family and is a native spring-blooming wildflower. It actually has two different kinds of flowers, however. The showy spring flowers are yellow, blooming from March to early May. The second kind are not usually noticed, produced from late spring to summer and are very small fertile cleistogamous flowers, which are hidden within the bracts. Those self-fertilizing flowers produce most of the seed of this species.
