A weed or a flower?? Dandelion was created because it is one of the most recognized plants in the world. It is a plant of survival, which aligns perfectly with the strength and endurance of the steel. For all of its strength, once the dandelion has that irresistible white puff ball, it becomes very vulnerable to playful children who pluck it up and joyfully laugh as they blow the seeds into the wind.

Dandelion is a permanent acquisition donated by Paul & Debbie Rollinson in honor of their daughter, Shannon Hruska, SWS Marketing Director from 2016-2020.
