Default Re: Today I learned...

Dandelions have no posionous lookalikes but they do have a few that look similar and lack the medicinal actions we select Dandies for. The characteristic of a single flower head and a small, narrow stalk is definitive - but this thing, wow, the stalk was just HUGE! Good to know what it was. Seems like a natural process, perhaps a result of crowding.
