  1. I agree. They are really pretty! Did you grow them from seed? Iβ€˜d love to try that. πŸ˜ƒ

    Those pink dandelions are incredibly sweet. I checked my local garden guide and found the genus isn’t even listed, which makes it unlikely that the plant can be grown here. All the references I see come out of Europe so I will have make do with enjoying your plants from a distance.

  5. I didn’t know there was such a thing! I see in the comments they are domesticated, I could fall in love with those very easily. 😊

  9. Oh these are just so pretty, love them!
    I too was told not to pick dandelions or I’d wet the bed! Nonsense!

  10. A lovely vase…Do your pink dandelions close at night? I have a perennial Crepis Incana which has similar heads but with a branching structure to the stems.

  13. Ohhhh, so pretty. I would not have known they were dandelions if you hadn’t said. I need to see if I can find some of them. Are they hardy to just certain areas? Did you find them at your garden center or have to order them?

    • A blogging friend was kind enough to send me some seed – are you in the UK? If so, I will send you some seed when the time comes.
      I am told they are annuals. I am in the south of England and they seem happy here. It is the first year I have grown them.

  15. I have never heard of pink dandelions before! I have loads of yellow ones in the garden and actually think they look rather cheerful in spring. The pink ones are lovely and you are right about the green of the lady’s mantle

    • This is what I love most about ‘In a Vase n Monday’, I learn so much. I hadn’t heard of Pink Dandelions until last year when Cathy of Rambling in the Garden, showed hers. They are a truly delightful discovery.

  16. Very pretty. I always love yellow dandelions unless they are in my garden! Are the pink ones just as rampant? And I didn’t know they were a diuretic though I did know you could eat the leaves. I may even have done so once when they used to inhabit the gaps in the paving before I had it redone.

    • I love dandelions too, and have always thought that if they weren’t such a prolific weed we would want them in our gardens. I am told the pink ones are annuals, so they shouldn’t be so rampant as their wild cousins. I wouldn’t want to eat the leaves of the pink ones – they are a bit hairy and taste truly disgusting!

  17. In French dandelions are called ‘Pissenlit’ and as ‘lit’ is the word for ‘bed’ I think they have the same idea 🀣

  18. They’re gorgeous. Do they still make you wet the bed though?
