Common Teasel (Wild Teasel; Fuller's Teasel)

Dipsacus fullonum

Habitat:

Roadside near Marshland

Notes:

It is native to Eurasia and North Africa, but it is known in the Americas, southern Africa, Australia and New Zealand as an introduced species and often a noxious weed. The seeds are an important winter food resource for some birds, notably the European goldfinch. Teasels are often grown in gardens and encouraged on some nature reserves to attract them.
