Dandelion.

The word "dandelion" is from the French dent de lion, or "lion's tooth" referring to its coarsely-toothed leaves.

In Pueblo, Colorado, it's illegal to allow a dandelion to grow within city limits.


The Dandelion has been used in herbal medicine to treat infections, bile and liver problems, and as a diuretic.

Despite its useful properties, the dandelion has grown to be regarded as a weed, as a result of the rise of lawn culture and marketing by pesticide companies.

The tallest dandelion measured a huge 5ft 10in (177.8 cm) and was found by two Canadians in Ontario in 2011
