In some cultures, dandelions were considered symbols of sorrow and grief. The dandelion was well known since the time of Moses, and it represents the bitter herbs found in the last supper. Dandelions are sometimes used to represent the Passion of Christ in theological symbolism, as well as being one of the bitter herbs of the Passover. In Israel, dandelions grow from the extreme north at Mount Hermon south to the Negev Dessert.
