Dandelions are beautiful perennials that are part of the daisy family.
The flowers bloom in the spring and summer. The leaves are oblong and the stems are gray or light purple. You've likely seen dandelions growing wild along roadways or even in your yard. However, you can grow these bright yellow flowers in your garden, since they complement other blooms well. Dandelion also looks great along walkways. The plant got its name from the French phrase "dent de lion," because the petals are long and slender, like a tooth.
Dandelions are under three feet at maturity and usually grow to about 15 inches. They can grow in partial shade or full sun. Dandelions thrive in hardiness zones 3-9.
Butterflies and honeybees are attracted to the flowers, so you'll likely see these small creatures in your garden as the dandelions grow.
The flowers grow in most types of soil, but dandelions usually prefer moist soil. When the flower dies back, you'll see silver seedlings that form a ball on the top of the steam. The seedlings easily blow off in the wind, and insects carry them away so that new dandelions can grow where the seedlings land. Dandelions require very little maintenance since they are wildflowers. This makes the flowers an ideal choice for people who want to try gardening for the first time.
Dandelions are native to North America and Eurasia. Native Americans use dandelion for medicine and food. Dandelion stems have a milky fluid inside of them that is safe for humans to consume. The leaves of dandelion can be added to a salad. The flowers can be dried and made into a tea or supplement. Dandelion is used for kidney and digestive issues, and the leaves and bulb is a natural diabetes treatment since the plant helps balance blood sugar levels.
