Lactuca viminea, called pliant lettuce, is a Eurasian plant species in the dandelion tribe within the daisy family. It is widespread across much of Europe and southwestern Asia from Portugal to Pakistan.
Lactuca viminea is a branching subshrub up to 30cm tall. Leaves near the base are pinnately lobed, but the leaves on the stem are narrow and linear, not lobed, becoming smaller farther up the plant. The uppermost leaves are pressed against the stem and almost scale-like. Flower heads have 4–5 yellow ray flowers but no disc flowers.
