Facts about Dandelions

Dandelion Facts 

If you had one wish, what would you wish for?

A wish is a desire for something that may or may not come true, but we can wish for it anyway!! Who knows, it might be your wish that makes it come true!! So keep making those wishes! Wish upon a star!! Wish upon a dandelion!! Wish upon a birthday candle. Always have a wishful heart!! 

I remember when I was a child, I made wishes on dandelions. Have you ever done that? I used to think the more significant the dandelion was, the faster the wish would come true. 

I would like to share some facts about dandelions with you.

Facts about Dandelions:
1. Dandelions are considered an ornamental weed. Their golden yellow blooms quickly become fluffy seedheads that disperse in the wind.
2. Pharmacists in 19th-century England made tea from roasted dandelion roots, which is still trendy today due to its coffee-like taste and color without caffeine.
3. A cup of chopped raw dandelion greens provides 112% of the daily requirement for vitamin A. From blossom to root, 100% of this weed (also an herb) is edible for most people.
4. Dandelions are part of the daisy family.
5. Dandelions represent three different celestial bodies at three distinct phases of their life:
The yellow flower represents the sun.
The dispersed seeds look like the stars.
The puffy dandelion ball has a similar appearance to the moon.
6. The seeds (the parts of the plant that fly away) can travel for up to 5 miles after being dispersed in the wind!
7. Not all people think dandelions are a weed.

Now that you’re equipped with fascinating dandelion facts, go share the knowledge with your family and friends!
