The Dandelion: Translated

The word for the abundant summertime “Dandelion” comes from the French dents de lion, meaning teeth of the lion and refers to the plants jagged edges.

The other French name for this plant is pis-en-lit, in English this means wet the bed. Dandelions, because their greens, when eaten, remove water from the body. Not recommend for a bedtime snack.
