The flower heads mature into spherical seed heads called blowballs containing many single-seeded fruits called achenes.
Early-flowering dandelions may be distinguished from coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) by their basal rosette of leaves, their lack of disc florets, and the absence of scales on the flowering stem.
In general, the leaves are 5–25 cm long or longer, simple, lobed, and form a basal rosette above the central taproot.
The flower heads are yellow to orange coloured, and are open in the daytime, but closed at night.
However, dandelion flowers are borne singly on unbranched, hairless and leafless, hollow stems, while catsear flowering stems are branched, solid, and carry bracts.
Both plants have a basal rosette of leaves and a central taproot.
