Sonchus acaulis

14th June 2011

A giant dandelion from Tenerife and Gran Canaria that produces a large leafy rosette. I think it would prefer a richer soil than I give it but it isn't all that hardy so it has to come in for the winter.
I was given this as a seedling, and would like to keep it going so until it produces viable seed it will have to suffer the windowsill treatment.

Now growing in a three gallon bucket, the days of keeping it on the windowsill are long over. Growing in the greenhouse, it will have to take its chances with winter cold.
