Hieracium villosum, common name shaggy hawkweed, is a species of flowering plant in the aster family.



Hieracium villosum can reach a height of 30–45 centimetres (12–18 in). This plant forms dense basal rosettes of silver-grey, simple, oblong to lanceolate, woolly leaves, about 4.5–8.5 centimetres (1.8–3.3 in) long. The many-stellate flowers are bright yellow, 4–5 centimetres (1.6–2.0 in) large, on white-hairy stems. They bloom from July to August.


This species is native to France, Italy, Central Europe, the Balkan Peninsula, Romania and Russia.


Hieracium villosum can be found in mountain areas in calcareous stony and grassy places, at elevation of 1,400–2,500 metres (4,600–8,200 ft) above sea level..
