Crayola is removing the color dandelion from all of its crayon boxes to make way for a new color that it plans to announce on Friday.

Dandelion has gone to seed.

Crayola is removing the color from all of its crayon boxes to make way for a new color that it plans to announce on Friday — National Crayon Day. The company announced dandelion's departure via Twitter on Thursday.

It's only the third time in Crayola's long history that it has retired a color, and the first time it's removing one from the box of 24.
