In the U.S. dandelions are one of the most hated flowers. But they are also one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
In many parts of the world, spring is in full bloom. Flowers of all colors and shapes can be seen in gardens, parks and other green spaces. They make our world look and smell better.
So, it is no surprise that people love flowers! Well…except for one.
There is probably no flower more hated, or misunderstood, than the bright yellow dandelion.
In the United States, they are considered “weeds,” the name for any unwanted plant. In an effort to have the perfect green grass lawn, people try their best to kill all dandelions with chemical products. Or they dig them out at the roots — only to see them grow right back.
