Flowers bring beauty, and the best moment to feel this is on April 5, National Dandelion Day. Dandelion flowers are not weeds to be destroyed to keep the lawn flawless. They are rich in vitamins and very beneficial.
Dandelions grew in warm regions on Eurasia 30 million years ago. People became accustomed to using the plant as an additive food. Dandelion apparently comes from the French phrase diente de Leon, means lion’s tooth.
Vineland is the unofficial dandelion capital. New Jersey is the largest flower supplier to the consumer market.
- Dandelions can become a substitute for raw materials in rubber production.
- Do not rush to get rid of this plant. Dandelions have deep roots; they pull water from the deeper soil layers. Plants that grow next to dandelions and do not have a branched root system get the opportunity to absorb sufficient nutrition.
- Dandelions are used for cooking and added to tea. Some varieties of wine may also include dandelion.
On this national holiday, refuse to pick this flower and eat it! Enjoy its visual beauty and natural harmony of unity with nature.
