Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Allwild On Apr 22, 2009, Allwild from North, TX wrote:

This dandelion grows wild here. It would probably be considered an invasive weed to most. I see it as a native, low growing wildflower blooming in early spring, before many of the other dandelions. It has large nodular tuber-like growths on the roots (I suspect giving it the name of potato dandelion). Leaves grow in a basal rosette emerging in winter.

I had a hard time obtaining an ID on this wildflower so I won't bother submitting pics which aren't that great, except maybe just one.
