I ordered seeds of this plant. The seedlings grew well and are very hardy, but, my flowers were NOT pink, they were pure yellow! I uploaded an image of them to see, and my seeds were seperated so I know it was not wild stock that grew.

After harvesting the seeds, store in the fridge to keep them cool and in the spring they will germinate better. You can also start them indoors a month before last frost date, but they do poorly indoors if kept too dry, they like humidity, but not soil too wet.

I recently bought this Dandelion out of pure curiosity in a Dutch nursery specialised in unusual plants. I was told it was a white blooming Dandelion.. The plant had a seed head and only one flower bud. Today it finally opened up and the colour is a bit weird and difficult to describe, it feels like the flower couldn't make up its mind what colour it should be, lol! The outer flower petals have a pinkish hue nearly white in the sunlight, the colour gradually turns into pale yellow towards the centre with true yellow-orange stamen. It has the normal Dandelion leaves.
