Goatsbeard

£3.00£5.70

Goatsbeard has beautiful large dandelion clock seed heads as big as the palm of your hand. The flower heads are bright yellow and are a stunning addition to a grassland or meadow. It is found naturally occurring on railway banks, sunny hedgerows or grassland. However with the seed heads dispersing by the wind, a plant can suddenly appear in a new location.
Goatsbeard is a short lived perennial which often lives only 1 or 2 years but it self seeds easily.
