Not Heat Lovers

The seeds came up and the plants were very healthy. I was looking forward to the blossoms. Then we had this heat wave and they just declined rapidly. They only get a small amount of morning sun but that didn't seem to make any difference. I really don't think they will bloom now even if they recover. I would recommend these seed only to someone who lived where it remained somewhat cool during the summer.

A Nice Distraction from the Typical Yellow Dandelion

Germinating the seeds was easy. I have 3 small areas where I've planted a grouping of the pink dandelions. Some of the early ones are now flowering. I'm happy with this new addition.

Pink dandelion

Love ordering from pinetree! Great germination, I pressed unto the surface and placed under grow lights. Sprouted in 7 to 10 days for me. I wanted some pink dandelions cause they look adorable. Dandelions are really great pollinators and not just "weeds". Will be hardening off and transplanting soon zone 8B Central Texas.
