Dandelion seeds will grow everywhere, and they are easy to establish and maintain. The leaves are dark green, long, and lance-shaped. The Dandelion herb plant grows from a tightly formed rosette and has a deep, twisted tap root that is rather brittle and breaks easily; however, it makes it quite drought resistant and a great water conservation plant. The yellow flower is well-recognized and grows on hallow stems that reach 4 to 12 inches in height.
