Pant ID-Lesser Celandine

Asked April 26, 2019, 2:43 PM EDT

Just discovered a clump of this growing in my garden. It's quite tall - almost 12 inches. Is this Lesser Celandine or something else. I couldn't get a good photo of the leaves but the look more fern-like.Plant Snap identified it as Senecio scandens - any advise etc. Thank you. Yvonne

This looks like Golden Ragwort (Packera aurea). It is a native species in Maryland. https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=4354
