Dandelion is a Yellow-Flowered, Fast Grower
Not usually used for decoration, Dandelions are edible and traditionally as a medicine. Flowers are typically yellow and open with sunlight while closing at night and grow from single stems of 10cm or more.
When mature, dandelions form a ball with seeds that are transported in the wind.

Pruning: once pruned, the Dandelion vigorously sprouts new leaves and will keep regenerating foliage as long as its roots are still in the ground, even if the top is cut off completely.
Flower Form: Dandelion is a hardy perennial with a long taproot. From the base of the plant is a basal rosette of highly irregular, lanceolate and dully or sharply toothed leaves growing up to 45cm (1ft ½) and 10cm (4in) wide.
Dandelion is a Composite Flower and Grows in Virtually all Soil Conditions
It is a composite flower, meaning that in each flower head there are dozens of smaller flowers disguised as the “petals.” Each of these flowers matures as cypselae, tiny oblong shaped seeds with parachute-like pappi that forms a white, fluffy appearing seed head. The seeds catch and are transported by the wind, often reaching very far distances.
