Fendler's Desert Dandelion

I hope you’re getting a chance to do some wandering this spring…maybe your backyard or a nearby park or even out in the wild. I owe you an episode about pale wolfberry (Lycium pallidum) and I’ll do that, but this bright little annual that looks so much like a dandelion is abundant around out little homestead this April. I like the common name Fendler’s desert dandelion and of course I like the botanical name Malacothrix fendleri.

The photos are mine and taken very near our home. The underside of the flower helps identify it from other dandelion-like flowers you may find. Wow, beautiful on both sides!
