Dandelions have a single deep taproot as they spread and grow by seed germination without fertilization and produce a rosette of deeply toothed leaves at the base of the plant. Stalks are round and hollow, filled with a milky latex, and can grow as tall as 72 cm.
The plant’s flowers first bloom as bright yellow florets with each petal actually representing a whole flower. These flowers close within days of producing to develop seeds within each flower and result in the parachute-like bristles we recognize that are carried off by wind to spread to other locations.
