From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taraxacum, is a large genus of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae. They are native to Eurasia and North 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.

Hallo Xanthos
What a superb photograph with lots of fine and delicate features. Colours and details of this opened weed is beautifully captured and well seen. A sharp image with a pleasant composition, which is indeed praiseworthy. A wonderful macro. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Xanthos,
A fabulous image and a good idea to have opened it up so that one can see what it really looks like. Excellent quality.
