The flat form from cattle
grassed fields and lawns.
Lot of flowers on
A higher form. Can
get even higher when in the shadows.
The member of the
Asteraceae family was given this name by Franz von Paula von Schrank in 1786. It is (now)
found all around the world in the temperate areas. I can grow in
almost everything with some to lots of water and little to plenty of
sum. The deep tap-root will get up to 3,5 centimetres in diameter,
the leafs up to 30 centimetres or even up to one meters when keep in
the shadows. When kept in a grassing area or a lawn, the flowers stays
down in one centimetre. In the shadows, they can get two meters
high! It can (very easy!) be reproduced by the air-bourn seeds but
also by root-cuttings.
Some may argue it
is not a caudiciform, but I'm sure it would be in many
collections if it was rare or extinct in the wild. In general, I
have advoided rare plants in my collection, if I could get
common caudiciform members of the same family.
