Pink Dandelion (Taraxacum pseudoroseum)

Yes, this is a pink flowered dandelion. Pink Dandelions (commonly identified as the species Taraxacum pseudoroseum, “an imperfectly known taxon,” see “The genus Taraxacum in the Caucasus,” by Jan Kirschner and Jan Štěpánek) are perennial and similar in leaf shape, root, and stature to the Common Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale). The most substantial and striking difference for any dandelion enthusiast will be the color of the flower: undeniably pastel pink with the classic yellow core. This was developed from seed saving that Quin did at Mano Farm in 2016, and now being introduced into the catalog with limited availability, hopefully improving as the season goes on.

40-60 days from seed to flower in spring growing conditions. Perennial. Hardy to zones 3 and above.
