Does anybody know of any perennials with Dandelion-like foliage? Last year I sowed mixed hardy perennials, and had 3 young plants that looked like they were going to be Dandelions.One of them was, and has been removed!! The other 2 have developed massive leaves which look like Dandelions, but are too big and are slightly furry.I know time will tell, but does anyone have any ideas?

I had a girl friend that pampered a poppy all summer long anticipating the flowers. She'd tell me how big and healthy it was and she couldn't wait. When it finally did bloom ... it turned out to be a monstrous dandelion!.

Some forms of centaurea look a little like dandelions and are common in flower mixes.

This is interesting. I stopped off at a greenhouse market yesterday and in one of the pots of mixed flowers they had as the main attraction what looked like a great big dandelion. It was not in bloom yet so I was not sure but couldnt believe they would be a dandelion since they did not seem to have many herbs and were not into the wild edible type scene. I bet it was a poppy

Poppysue, I pampered a plant that came up in the front flower bed the first summer we moved here. The plant kept getting larger and taller and and I knew when it flowered it was going to be a beauty. I was correct. It was the most beautiful thistle anyone has ever seen. Now 10 years later I am still digging thistles from the yard.
