Dandelion Flowers in Our Garden

Dandelion flowers are getting a lot now in Germany. You can even see hundreds of it in our garden. One thing I don’t like about it is when the pollen starts to spread to the air. I always closed our windows and doors to prevent pollen coming inside our house. I know these are weed flowers but I still see it’s own beauty…simply look at this picture.

Taraxacum is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They are native to Europe, North America and Asia and two species, T. officinale and T. erythrospermum, are found as weeds worldwide. The common name Dandelion (IPA: /ˈdændɪlaɪən/) 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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dandelion

    Very interesting information about Dandelions. I didn’t realize there were two species. I suspect I may have a third species, (that I would like to name “T. titanium”), which is so hard to irradicate it actually thrives on abuse. Haha!
