R. SOUNDARARAJAN

Mongolia Post issued a stamp, valued at 40 tugrik, featuring dandelion, a perennial herb of the composite order. Its botanical name is Taraxacum officinale. The plant is native to all temperate and cold regions.

The jagged leaves of the plant resemble the teeth of a lion. Hence the name ‘dandelion’. Its root bears many hollow flower stalks with solitary heads of yellow

florets.
