Taraxacum pseudoroseum, the pink flowered dandelion

I thought I’d blogged about my favourite edimental dandelion before, but I couldn’t find it. There’s more about the pink flowered dandelion in my book Around the World in 80 days.  Here are some pictures:

  1. did you grow them seed? I just saw a note on them and the lilac flowered dandelion. Thanks!

    1. Yes, my first plants were both seed propagated and from a nursery in Northern Norway…
      The lilac flowered dandelion seed haven’t germinated :(
