Derivation of the botanical name:
Hieracium from ancient Greek hierax, "a hawk". Pliny the Elder (23-79 CE) believed that hawks fed on this plant to strengthen their eyesight and thus it became the Greek and Latin name for this and similar plants, called hawkweed.
umbellatum, umbella, "umbrella", like umbels or umbrella-like flower heads. Literally: a little shadow.
- The standard author abbreviation L. is used to indicate Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, the father of modern taxonomy.
- The standard author abbreviation Michx. is used to indicate André Michaux (1746 – 1803), a French botanist and explorer.
