Dandelion is one of the most widely recognized broadleaf weeds in North America. Dandelion can be found everywhere from home lawns, gardens, roadsides, meadows, forests etc. Dandelions feature bright yellow flowers produced on individual stalks. It reproduces by seeds which appear as a white puffball seedhead replacing the flower. Seeds are then disseminated by wind or by means of mechanical distribution from mowing and foot traffic.
