Did not think of counting them at that time sir... but looking at the
images there are generally about 3-4 flowers together.. the height of
the plant was as mentioned earlier about 30 inches (give or take a few
inches)

I can count several heads in this photograph. I think Prenanthes brunoniana now considered synonym of Lactuca brunoniana

Alok ji
your counting is not appropriate. The inflorescence has numerous heads on a branched axis (panicle) and each head has 3-4 flowers (florets--structures with red base and white upper part. in fact they are ray florets).
