Project Description

This dandelion was in our backyard and looked fantastic with sunlight streaming down onto the seed head.  It’s interesting how the individual seeds are designed with small sails so that when the slightest breeze happens they can be carried off a considerable distance.  Seed production varies from 54 to 172 seeds per head and a single plant can produce more than 2000 seeds!  No wonder this plant is so successful around the world and in my lawn.   🙂
