Dandelion is a weed, not a flower.

A weed is an undesirable or invasive plant. The dandelion is one of them. These kinds of plants can still, of course, flower, just like trees can.

That is spot on. A rose in a field of barley can be considered a weed. Agriculturally speaking.

And cherries are trees, but they still have flowers. Dandelion is a wonderful plant. All parts of it are edible, it has healing properties, you can make wine from the flowers, and if you blow off all the fuzzy things with one breath your wish will come true.

Yep, and to moms, they're as good as roses. I have found, though, that moms are not as fond of daddy long leg spiders as presents, no matter how cool they look to you. :-P

I got in trouble for picking dandylions because that milky substance from the stems would stain your hands and clothes when in contact. Apparently it was hard to clean from clothing.

Any flower can be a weed if it's growing where you don't want it to be! Quizmaster can there be a little leeway on the spelling of Hydrangea please? I tried several endings but would never have got the answer even though I know the plant. Thank you

Right. I somehow had a cornstalk growing in my flowerbed. I don't grow corn nor do I know anyone who does. I wouldn't call corn a weed, but in that case, it was.

Why did I only remember the Japanese name for Dandilion? (Popotan) and my first guess at Cherry Blossom was also the Japanese and accepted alternative of Sakura Blossom/Tree. At least I did get that one.

Only missed Hydrangea and Dahlia, but I have seen both before. And a dandelion is a wild flower that just happens to be attached to a weed. Not to be scientific or anything.

I didn't know that. I was just throwing out flowers that I knew, hoping one would stick. And, to my surprise, when I typed "violet," up came "pansy." :D

Violets are also members of the Viola family. And to make it more confusing, there is a small flower in the Viola family which is marketed as a viola. That's probably the one to which Zola25 referred and I should have capitalized Viola in my response. Pansies have four petals pointing up and one pointing down, while violas have three petals pointing up and two pointing down. The photo is a pansy, but it is also a Viola, not a viola.

The marigold sure looks like a mum to me. Hmm.
+1
level 60
Mar 21, 2017
Mums have a lot more petals, all the way to the center, and the petals are usually more teardrop-shaped with smooth edges (yes, I know there are exceptions, like spider mums). Marigolds have that wavy look to their petals, and are a more consistent width throughout. The leaves in the background are definitely distinctively marigold leaves too--they kind of have a fern-like appearance. (I worked in a flower shop :D).

Um, that marigold looks absolutely nothing like what I consider a marigold. And after some of the comments above, I looked up French marigold, and I'm still not seeing it. It looks like a small gerbera daisy to me. Also, anemone should work for poppy.
