Tara Xacum Dandelion is the common name for Taraxacum officinale. The name originates from the French term "dent de lion," referring to the tooth-like looks of the plant leaves. It is a perennial and herbaceous plant with an unbranched taproot. The flowers are found extensively throughout Europe, Asia, South America, North America, New Zealand, and others worldwide. It's a member of the Asteraceae family, the Sunflower or Daisy family. They usually grow between 12 to 48 inches tall (1 to 2 feet).
Flowers appear on the plant in spring, but you may also notice some in the Fall. The flowers of this plant bloom open in the sun and close at night. The sepals of this family are modified, and no sepals are present on the flowers while the fruit is the achene. The seeds mature after the flowering season while the stem elongates, enabling the seed on the stalk to head into the air. It allows the seeds to be distributed by the air from the clock (head of the flower).
The leaves are deeply tooth and basal. They do not grow on the plant's stems but from the plant crown. They are 5 to 25 cm long and form a rosette over the taproot. The flowers of this plant are bright yellow, which grows on tall stalks up to 70 cm in height.
Multiple flowering stems may rise at once. The flower is a cluster of numerous small florets that look like the flower's petals. It is also known as the Dandelion Clock that children love to blow. The number of blows to spread all the florets has been believed to depict that time of the day.
The plant grows asexually from seeds. But, it also can develop seeds without cross-fertilization. The resulting plants produced are clones of the parent plants produced without fertilization. If you wish to have multiple these plants in your garden, all you need to do is plant one only – it will increase on its own. The plants grow for up to 10 years, reaching a significant size of 50cm in width.
When you Buy these plants, make sure to buy the original plant, as many fake plant varieties are found worldwide. The leaves are round and multi-florets with a similar yellow flower.
The flowers are used to make wine, while the leaves are added to salads. You can also try coffee made with baked and ground roots of the plant. The low-maintenance plant can be grown anywhere like lawn, pastures, roadside and gardens, and backyards.
