Dandelion is a term for plants of the genus dandelion, being a collective name for small species or referring to a single species found in a small area in Scandinavia and Europe. Over 200 species have been recorded in Poland. They grow in ruderal habitats, in meadows, in bright forests and grasslands. Dandelion plants are used as edible, medicinal and fodder plants, while in crops they are considered weeds. The dandelion is characterized by the intense yellow color of its flowers, and when it is picked, a characteristic white juice flows from its broken stem, which stains fingers and clothes. It is common and has a very high pro-health potential.
