OK I have to know — what Do you want it for?
...I’m a bit concerned that dandelions must be considered weeds ...is it in the invasives list? Would there be problems transporting/shipping them across state lines, let alone U.S.-Canadian border?
...alternatives if you just need components for some reason ... Italian dandelion leaves are sold in the supermarket or at least some ethnic markets as pot herb/vegetable ... dried dandelion roots are often sold as herbal teas or sometimes tinctures ... some herbalists carry different parts of dandelions as dried herbs, roots, etc. Sometimes you can find seeds for specific species of dandelions. I’ve always been curious about the native Japanese white dandelions myself.
