U is for Urospermum

This plant is unmentionable. Its petals are said to look like Lion’s Teeth – dents de lion – but the sunny petals aren’t the problem. The tap roots are the bit that drive me crazy, they’re incredibly tenacious.  Oh! And I’m not too happy about those flying seeds either. Yes. My other name is killjoy.

However, you may like to pop over to horticulture guru’s Sheryl Normandeau’s blog for her take on the ubiquitous urospermum.

  1. By the way, the top page post dated from 2013 might be confusing to some visitors. How have your visits and comments been during A to Z? If they’ve been low this might account for it. Some people don’t think to scroll down to look for more current posts.
