That may be it. I haven't seen any blooms yet so I can't compare those.

Thanks, Lin.

I usually check that TN site but didn't take the time to do so. It's one of my standard go-to sites.

Any reason why it's not Taraxacum officinale?

Dandelion was my first thought too. They have a very long tap root.

Or possibly chicory. http://www.msuturfweeds.net/details/_/chicory_4/ Shrug!

It looks like you may be able to differentiate by inspecting the back of the leaf along the spine.

It is probably regular dandelion, but now that I think about it, I do also have chicory and also pink dandelion (crepis incana) somewhere out there. I'll have to go down and take another look.

Pretty, Rick. Are you growing it (presumably from seed)?
