Since I was a kid, I thought it was sort of novel to collect dandelion seeds while I was abroad and bring them back to the States and try to grow them. For whatever reason, it never worked until this year. I procured seeds from both Egypt and the Netherlands and both sets have sprouted.
I'm wondering how to tell what species they are - whether they're T. officinale or something else. The other dandelions around where I collected the seeds in Egypt seemed less fluffy than those in the Netherlands.
Also, I've read a lot about dandelions reproducing asexually and am wondering if that means it's impossible to cross my Dutch dandelions with my Egyptian ones.
