I know this sounds ridiculous, but my husband has always been the weed eradicator. I never took much time to learn weeds, and I never paid attention to dandelions without the flower. I just want to make sure as I'm wanting to ID all my weeds before removing them.

Sure looks like a dandelion to my eyes, but whether it is a weed or not depend on if you intend to eat it or allow it to grow to make wine.

I agree Especially if they have a long tap root. You have to admire dandelions, such tenacious plants and they are great for bees.
