Pictures of Dandelion Flower-Dandelion Symbolism

Spring is coming soon and the dandelion will show up everywhere, even burst through the cracks of city sidewalks. With it's bright golden yellow, furry looking flower which blooms almost anytime of the year, the dandelion is one of the many amazing, under-appreciated resources that exist right under our noses.

Plants in our lives have great power. Indoor plants and outdoor plants can bring us down or lift us up.
We have all experienced the ability to regenerate from our roots like the dandelion. Their ability to thrive under the most adverse conditions can teach us persistence and survival.

Dandelion Flower Symbolism


Dandelions stand for wishes coming true. The dozens of seeds released by each flower head represent fertility and abundance. The seeds' journey illustrates a time of clothing the past and a symbol of hope for starting something new. When we blow away the puffball with it's seeds, we make a wish for something better. It also symbolize faithfulness and happiness, affection returned, desire, sympathy, Oracle of Time and Love.
Dandelions are rich in symbolism and some of these symbols are very different and opposed to each other; in some traditions dandelions symbolize flirtation or grief.
In my next post I shall share with you my experiences with the dandelion herbal tea and medical effects.
