Remarks

Sometimes a major component of heavily grazed native pasture, in association with Poa pratensis (seem familiar?), where the association appears to be an alternative climax condition.

Edible: originally introduced as a garden plant and grown commercially in some countries. All parts of the plant are used in various ways too numerous to list here. See our Dandelion poster [1], and our Dandelion recipes [2].
