Similar to a miniature dandelion with a puffball seed head like a dandelion too. Has fibrous roots as opposed to a taproot. Scattered all over the backyard.

    You’re welcome Richard H! Appreciate for the kind words & confirmed ID. It’s true with search engine’s mess, while looking ID for this plant results either yielding mostly ‘dandelion’ plants or numerous genera of other yellow herbaceous plants. But thanks to you for giving us a great key “fibrous root”. This helps us quickly to narrow down :)!
    Best wishes Richard H!

    Laura, Appears to be an exact match. Closely examined others in my yard and everything seems to fit. Came to the right place for answers. Can get frustrating using a description in a search engine. Thanks, Richard H.

    I’m unable to see the center of flower clearly to tell . Also the flower appears to be single stem (?). I’m wonder if this could be Virginia dwarfdandelion (Krigia virginica)? Copy & paste the included link below for K. virginica and see if you have a match. again I’m only speculating. If this is not in the Krigia genus, please resubmit with photos of side view of the plant, back of the flowers and closeup of the “puffball seed head”. Thank you & best wishes!
