Malacothrix glabrata is a species of dicotyledonous flowering plant known generally as the smooth desert dandelion or desert dandelion. The species is native to the western United States, excluding much of the Pacific Northwest, and into northern Mexico. M. glabrata is typically 5 to 15 inches tall with a 1.5 to 2.5 inch flower head. Its fragrant, daisy-like flowers are in shades of yellow or white, and undeveloped flowers have a red "button" in the center of the flower head.
