Hey Everyone,

Found this plant growing along the roadsides in the Chicagoland area. Any idea of what it is. Looks like it might be in the Mustard Family.

Thanks for your help!

It's not in the mustard family because the flowers have more than four petals. It seems to be missing leaves so my best guess at the moment is ragwort, Packera aurea.

It looks a lot like Packera to me also. Possibly Packera glabella.

Thanks Horntoad and Sooby! That's Packera is exactly what it was!
