Description of the Dandelion Flower
Everyone knows what the dandelion looks like, it is such an easy flower to recognize. a dandelion can be characterized by its long hollow stem and the yellow flower that it has on top. Depending on the season that it is, it may have white fuzz on top of it that is the pollination and how the dandelion spreads. This flower is a tap rooted biennial, so it will keep coming back time after time; it is a hard plant to get rid of if you don’t want it. the flower on top has a ton of little florets or petals and at some point it will become a seed head that will spread throughout the area and create new dandelion plants.
Taraxacum is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They are native to Eurasia and North America, and two species, T. officinale and T. erythrospermum, are found as weeds worldwide. both species are edible in their entirety. the common name dandelion is given to members of the genus, and like other members of the Asteraceae family, they have very small flowers collected together into a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head is called a floret. many Taraxacum species produce seeds asexually by apomixis, where the seeds are produced without pollination, resulting in offspring that are genetically identical to the parent plant.
