Description

 Dandelions have been long used as a medicinal herb and are famous for their role in the flowering meadow.

These flowering stalks produce pinkish-purple flowers with five overlapping petals of 1/2 to 1" across that mature into compound fruits. It has many tiny achenes suspended on silky white hairs within a papery perianth of 8 segments that enclose numerous single-seeded nutlets of various colors (brown, black, red). These plants sometimes spread by reseeding themselves.

They have an oblanceolate shape (like a spearhead with the point being the most significant part). The typical basal leaf has its broadest part near the tip, but it is more or less lobed along its length. That gives the leaf a pinnatifid appearance (like a mitten). Each leaf also has teeth on its margins that curve outward as they descend toward the apex, and occasionally there is one large tooth at the base of each lobe (this latter trait is not found in all dandelions). Most leaves are green, but they sometimes can become reddish-green toward their base. They are hairless, although young leaves may have fine hairs near their apex.
Dandelion has tapering leaves and bright yellow flowers that consist of a central disc and petals surrounding it. The flowers bloom from April to July.

 To some people, dandelions are a weed that grows even in their yards. They have conical leaves with complex pinnatifid (lobed) divisions, numerous small flowers forming dense flat-topped clusters, and copious milky latex that oozes from their stems and leaves when these structures are broken. The roots of a dandelion plant can grow quite deep, up to 10 feet.

Dandelion is a herbaceous perennial plant found in all temperate regions of the world.

It has long been known as an edible herb and a diuretic. There is some controversy about whether or not Dandelion should be used as a medicine. Still, it does have anti-inflammatory properties, and its use for this purpose dates back to the time of Hippocrates. Dandelion root was used by Native Americans for medicinal purposes hundreds of years ago, even before it was known in Europe. The common name for Dandelion comes from the French dent de lion, which means "lion's tooth," referring to the jagged edge on each leaf. That can sometimes be confused with other daisy family members, including hawkbit and water hemlock.

Dandelion produces an abundance of bright yellow flowers that bloom from early summer to autumn. These daisy-like flowers are a common sight across the world's temperate regions and are sometimes even used as a vegetable. This herbaceous perennial should be planted in sunny, well-drained, rich soil. It usually blooms later in the growing season than other perennial plants such as coreopsis. It is one of the best Dandelion types for its easy care and bearability through the heat.


Once done for the season, dandelions turn into fluffy seed heads comprising hundreds of tiny parachutes that help the seeds travel. Each plant produces thousands of seeds. The young leaves are used in salads or on sandwiches, and the flower heads are used for wine.

Dandelion is used for edible leaves, which can be eaten either raw or cooked.

The fluffy heads are made into dandelion wine, coffee substitute, syrup, cakes, and dandelion salad. It also has medicinal use for treating depression and anxiety.
