Derivation of the botanical name:
Pilosella Latin Pilosus, hairy.
aurantiaca, Latin aurantiacus golden yellow, referring to the center of the yellow-orange colored flowers.
Hieracium, Greek hierax, a hawk, from the fanciful tale that hawks sharpened their sight by anointing their eyes with the juice of one or other of the plants so named: Hawkeyed.
