Description

 Dandelion, Taraxacum is a Composite Flower and Grows in Virtually all Soil Conditions 

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.

It is a composite flower, meaning that there are dozens of smaller flowers disguised as the “petals in each flower head.” These flowers mature as cypselae, tiny oblong-shaped seeds with parachute-like pappi that form a white, fluffy appearing seed head. The seeds catch and are transported by the wind, often reaching very far distances.
