Taraxacum cordatum Palmgr. “Entire-lobed Dandelion”
Native, widespread throughout Britain, but mostly coastal in northern Scotland. Much less common than formerly, especially in the south-east. Semi-natural habitats, banks, walls, cliffs but sometimes a weed.
T. cordatum has leaves of a clear, slightly pale green. The petioles are unwinged below and white on outers, pink on inners, often only faintly so. Side-lobes are mostly entire and usually somewhat sigmoid distally. End-lobes are entire, triangular and cordate at base. Exterior bracts are rather short and broad, spreading to slightly recurved and somewhat pruinose. Ligule stripes are greyish-pink.
