Description: Common Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) seedhead. Trail at Salt Marsh Nature Center, Marine Park, Brooklyn, NY. The flower stem (scape) elongates significantly so that seedhead is elevated with respect to original position of flower. Has anyone studied this phenomenon and its regulation (e.g. hormones)?
