Dandelions are probably the best known flower. Most people consider it a weed, removing it from their lawns as quickly as possible. Being a composite, one plant is made up of dozens of flowers, producing a fluff of seeds. There are many different species and subspecies of dandelion. The red-seeded dandelion is found on dry soils, particularly in the dunes of North and South Holland and locally on the Wadden Islands. It grows in soils that are slightly rich in humus, moderately nutrient-poor and containing calcium. The entire plant is edible.
