|False Dandelion Fruits or Seeds|
Who doesn’t know Dandelion after they become famous as wallpapers? Once I spotted some flying seeds and was attracted by them. After almost two months ago, I found these more gorgeous seeds. I did Google search and came to know that they were Dandelions. Today, when I checked for more details, I realised that these are False Dandelions which we can find in India.
|Do you know, there are many False Dandelion types?|
Both Dandelion and False Dandelions belong to family Asteraceae and. Some of them are called as Hawk’s Beards, some are Hawkweeds and some others are Hawkbits. Original, I mean, dandelion is edible. Usually these are yellow in colour. There are white dandelions in Japan and there are red seeded dandelions. A Russain dandelion produces rubber it seems!
The false dandelion, which I spotted, had bright yellow flowers with some dark spots in the centre. The leaves were with spiny blades. Exact identification is not known yet.
