If you drive along the roadways in the Parry Sound area you will see what look like ‘super dandelions’. These are Goatsbeard (Tragopogon dubius) seed heads. The flower is rather shy, opening in the morning and closing by mid-day. This image shows the flower and the seed head of two separate plants growing side-by-side at different stages of their life-cycle. (July 2013)
