A Flower Called Cat’s Ear Dandelion - Nature and Wildlife 14

Cat’s Ear Dandelion

Common dandelion and Cat’s ear Dandelion are two different flowers, but look similar for me. It is said the different are following:

1) Hairs on leaves
- Cat’s ear Dandelion has dense hairs on leaves, but the Common Dandelion has no hairs.

2) Notched
- Notched is less deep in Cat’s ear Dandelion than in the Common Dandelion.

Both Cat’s ear Dandelion and Common Dandelion are perennial flowers, means that they are blooming in Summer to early Fall. Died in the colder seasons, then grow back in hot seasons.


Two wild flowers


In some places, Dandelion is an edible plant, good for salad, but I do not know whether American consume or not now days.

In addition to nutrients, Dandelion contain antioxidants. The plants are common as traditional medicines for:
- liver infections
- rheumatism
- constipation
- a diuretic for kidney problems
- gallstones
- treating urinary infection

Do you recognize this kind of flower in the nature?

  2. Yes, I know this wild plant ( Hypochaeris radicata) and it is often called the fake dandelion which I have written an entire blog about. The root contains a natural cortisone that is used for the treatment of allergies, rash and other itchy skin problems in both humans and pets. I sometimes use the young leaves for a salad because the older leaves are tough and not really tasty. We call it in Dutch: Gewoon biggenkruid.

  4. ...years ago in this area I would see older Italian men out collecting tender dandelions in early spring. I don't see this anymore, they must have passed on.

  5. I've never consumed them, but here in the south I hear many people have them to eat.

  6. Many lawns here are full of dandelions. When people don’t use herbicides on the lawns, the dandelion take over. I love to see them in the neighbourhood and on my own lawn. The bees love them too.

    My grandmother always picked young dandelion leaves and cooked them. I never fancied them. I don’t know if people eat them today. There are lots around for sure.

  13. Hello,

  14. I have always wondered what the name for Cat’s ear Dandelion was. I see them and think they are a bit more dainty than a regular dandelion. Some people do eat Dandelion here and it’s often at the farmer’s markets. I don’t care for it. It’s too bitter for my taste.

    É bem bonita, a flôr!

    Bom fim de semana. :)

  16. Tanza, I've never seen this type of dandelion before. As for consuming dandelions, I've had the greens in a salad (not my favorite) and I got drunk on dandelion wine in Brantford Ontario Canada that had been made by my brother's father-in-law from Hungary.
