Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

22. Dandelion
(Taraxacum officinale Weber)

22. Dandelion

As every gardener knows, the dandelion forms a deep tap-root, and a very short stem from which grow the long leaves with their triangular lobes. The golden flower-head is of the type known as Composite, consisting of a large number of small flowers, or florets, packed tightly together. April is the chief flowering season, but odd plants can be found in bloom at any time of the year.
