Dandelions grow low to the ground and can spread quickly by seeds dispersed from their characteristic round, white seed heads. As part of the Asteraceae family, dandelions are defined by their bright fluffy yellow flowers and can be spotted growing in parks or lawns. Flowers bloom at the start of spring and will continue throughout the year if temperatures permit. Dandelions are very resilient and once established, will return year after year.
Dandelion seeds require very little maintenance and can easily be grown. Seeds should be sown in early spring on surface soil and lightly covered. Seedlings should sprout within two weeks of planting.
