Texas wildflower – Texas Dandelion – Pyrrhopappus multicaulis – The Texas dandelion is different from the common dandelion. It is much larger and taller and is sometimes called “False dandelion.” It has unique dark purple to black “anther tubes” in the center of the flower. It has lemon-yellow flower heads, one to one and a half inches across. They grow in pastures, along roadsides and in lawns. They have a milky sap. When the seed heads are dry, they look like little puff balls. The Texas dandelion grows six to twenty inches long, blooms in the mornings from March through May and is part of the sunflower family.

I am an amateur photographer who takes a walk nearly every day with my camera shooting whatever interests me.

When I get home I peruse my images until I find the ONE that will go into my Redbubble portfolio that day.

Please stop by and see what I added today.

    beautiful work

  • Thanks, Sylvia. I had to find some other way of presenting this flower as I love it and keep photographing it. So, I thought why not HDR and see what happens.

    This doesn’t look anything like a dandelion! I never would have guessed. Typical of Texas, even their dandelions are larger and more colorful than anyone elses! lol
    Fabulous work with wonderful editing!! ♥♥

  • Thank you SummerJade. I thought the same thing when I found out it was a dandelion. We, Texans can’t do anything the usual way. By the way, we do also have regular dandelions, but, of course, they are also large. lol!
