Dandelions Dandelions


A clump of deformed dandelion flowers found in April 1987, about 6 miles north-northwest of TMI. All flowers appear normal except for one with a very wide, hollow stem and multiple flowers growing on top. This effect has been found every year since the accident in March of 1979. At this time, it is not known whether these mutations grow from the seed of prior years, or if there is residual contamination in the soil causing this, or both.
