Description

Yellow dandelion type flowers held on slim hairy stems from June to October. Rosettes of leaves stay close to the ground so can grow even after close mowing or grazing. A deep root system means that this plant is a true survivor, though eventually it will disappear if the soil is too rich and if gross weeds take over. Slow growing and spreads from runners as well as seed.
