The dandelion will grow anywhere and reflect whatever is in the soil that nurtures it. It grows from early spring to late autumn. Drastic measures are inspired to curb its proliferation,
a plant-type monster that swarms gardens, fields and paving with its flying seed-vessels
a Dandy Lion because of its immense flamboyant nature! Then I read that this plant gets its name from the shape of its leaves. They look like a blunt arrow head with a white line running up the centre. The edges are cut up into huge teeth which are said to resemble the teeth of a lion. Hence, Dandelion.
or, as the Sun and Moon: the large yellow flower-heads made up of a great many separate little flower tubes, and the ball of starry down said to be one of the most beautiful things in the flower world.
