Taraxacum intumescens G.E.Haglund “Red-tipped Dandelion”
Probably native, rather local, with a slight westerly bias in England and Wales, scarce in Scotland. Mostly semi-natural habitats, lane banks, woodland margins etc.
T. intumescens is a rather characterless species, which like other Piceata-group species has white petioles with darker marks on or around the mid-rib above, and violet-tinged exterior bracts. The proximal margins of the side-lobes are convex and the end-lobes of inner leaves are broad, entire and rounded.
