What's the lifespan of a dandelion?

2 Answers

A dandelion plant can grow for 5 - 10 years. Because the tap root goes so deep into the ground, they take firm root and can be difficult to eradicate.

Individual plants may survive for 10 to 13 years in undisturbed sites. Dandelion seeds can form a relatively persistent seedbank. Seed in soil has a half-life of 3 months. If buried, a few seeds may still remain viable at the end of 5 years.
