Hieracium bolanderi or Bolander's hawkweed is a North American plant species in the dandelion tribe within the sunflower family. It is found primarily in the mountains of western Oregon and northern California in the United States, although there are reports of the species farther south in the San Bernardino Mountains in southern California and also in Baja California in Mexico.

Hieracium bolanderi is an herb up to 60 cm (2.0 ft) tall, with leaves mostly in a rosette at the bottom. Leaves are up to 95 mm (3.7 in) long, with no teeth on the edges. One stalk will produce 3-40 flower heads in a flat-topped array. Each head has 6-12 yellow ray flowers but no disc flowers.
