One of the first wild flowers to come into bloom in Spring, the Dandelion has a rosette of characteristic 'lion's tooth' leaves, from the centre of which arises the hollow stem bearing the yellow flower head made up of 200 or more florets. The Dandelion Clock’s fluffy seedheads were used in many children's games, known as jimmyjoes in Dublin, the games often involved blowing the seeds off to count how many years it would be until you married. The Dandelion has been used to cure many ailments, from warts to kidney disease. The flowers have been used to make a potent but palatable wine, the young leaves can be used in salads and the roots can be roasted and ground to make dandelion coffee.

A series of botanical illustrations based on Ireland's native hedgerows. Blackthorn, dog-rose, gorse, wild garlic and primrose.
Dimensions: A4 (210 x 297mm) print on 340gsm uncoated paper. Print inset with white border.
