Dandelion Flower 10 - #F0E130
Taraxacum is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They
are native to Eurasia and North and South America, and two species, T.
officinale and T. erythrospermum, are found as weeds worldwide. Both species
are edible in their entirety. The common name dandelion, from French
dent-de-lion, meaning "lion's tooth," is given to members of the genus, and
like other members of the Asteraceae family, they have very small flowers
collected together into a composite flower head. Each single flower in a head
is called a floret. Many Taraxacum species produce seeds asexually by apomixis,
where the seeds are produced without pollination, resulting in offspring that
are genetically identical to the parent plant.
