Johnny’s Selected Seeds offers two species of dandelion: Taraxaum officinale, our common variety; and the Italian dandelion, Cichorium intybus. Here is a link to their offerings: http://www.johnnyseeds.com/p-8211-dandelion.aspx Also, Heirloom Seeds carries ‘Catalogna’ chicory, which looks like dandelion but is less bitter and more peppery.
