|A flowering dandelion|
A dandelion (pronounced /ˈdændɨlaɪ.ən/ (DAN-dih-ly-un) is a flower. Many people call it a weed. They can be eaten by humans. They are named for their sharp leaves that look like lion's teeth. Its seeds are like little parachutes that fly away with the wind, spreading and growing more dandelions. They are used in China as medicine. Dandelion pollen can often make people have allergies.
