Dandelion is a perennial, broadleaf plant that is probably the most recognizable lawn weed in the United States.  Dandelions begin growing in early spring and continue through summer and fall, and even winter in mild climates. The leaves are a bold green and have jagged edges.

The familiar yellow Dandelion flowers bloom from mid-spring until the first frost, depending on the growing area. As flowers mature, they turn into white, powder puffs of seeds that spread far and wide by the wind. Dandelions have thick, deep-growing roots that can reach more than 2 to 3 feet deep.
