Amsinckia es un género de plantas de flores de la familia Boraginaceae. Son nativas de Norteamérica y Suramérica pero se ha extendido por otras regiones.

Son plantas anuales, la mayoría con el tallo erecto que alcanza 20-120 cm de altura. En la mayoría de las flores su color es el amarillo y a menudo con tintes anaranjados. Casi todas se encuentran en altitudes menores de 500 metros.

Las semillas y el follaje son venenosos para el ganado porque contienen alcaloides y altas concentraciones de nitratos. Los pelillos agudos causan irritación en la piel de los humanos.
