SUPERPOWER

A big, strong taproot! Combined with its perennial nature, the taproot makes dandelion a super villain.

DESCRIPTION

A perennial weed with a large tap root, dandelions are sometimes present in early spring in time for pre-seed burnoff. The deep-lobed rosette stage is the most practical stage for control. If it gets past that stage, its familiar yellow flowers are easily recognizable. Dandelion is typically a bigger issue for those in dark brown to black soil zones.
