Taraxacum maruyamanum, formerly, Taraxacum platycarpum ssp. maruyamanum is an indigenous perennial species to the Oki Islands off the coast of the Shimane Peninsula. The flower heads, yellow, measure 3.5-4cm in diameter; the inner involucral bracts adhere to the petals, not bending backward or downwards, unlike the worldwide-spread T. officinale. The length of outer involucral bracts is as long two-thirds as the interior ones. Bloom time: April-May.
