Forever preserved in resin is the delicate structure of a dandelion seedhead, called a “clock”. Taraxacum is a ubiquitous wildflower in many areas of the world. Every part of the plant is edible, from its bright yellow flowers to the “lion tooth” shaped leaves of its namesake.
The dandelion has spent around 30 million years evolving an impressive seed dispersal method to maximize distribution. Each seed is attached to a parachute-like canopy of fine hairs that allows it to glide in the wind.
