prickly sow-thistle

Sonchus asper


Probably 6ft high, it's taller than me. Stems are two fingers thick but hollow on the inside. Purple highlights on green stem. Leaves are waxy and thorny. Produces dandelion like blooms in a bright sunny yellow. Thick, juicy tapering root Definitely a weed though.
