Asahi TV’s Morning Bird via Fukushima Diary:
The reporter of a NEWS TV show “Morning bird” on TV Asahi asked audience for information of mutated dandelions in Tokyo, but he found some by himself on a walk in Chuoku Tokyo. He comments he found fasciated dandelions very often.
“Fasciation can be caused by a mutation in the meristematic cells, bacterial infection, mite or insect attack, or chemical or mechanical damage. Some plants may inherit the trait. Fasciation is rare” -Source
