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 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 one or more col­ors, and the first time it’s re­mov­ing one from the box of 24.

Other col­ors that now lie fal­low in­clude maize, raw um­ber and or­ange yel­low.

Cray­ola crayons were pro­duced for the first time in 1903 by the Bin­ney & Smith Co.

Based in Eas­ton, Pa., Cray­ola is a sub­sidiary of Hall­mark Cards Inc., head­quar­tered in Kansas City, Mo. B B B

Na­tional Crayon Day is Fri­day. Cray­ola crayons de­buted in 1903.
