An edible dandelion lookalike. Dandelion stems are hollow, these ones are solid and forked with multiple flowers. (true dandelions only have one flower) It grows in the same areas as dandelion, has similar leaves, flowers and milky white sap. The leaves are a little shiner, lay flatter on the ground sand have little white hairs on them, especially on the underside on the central vein and the leaves have more rounded edges than the sharper tooth-like edges of dandelions. They can be used and eaten just like dandelions.
