Set B2 - Wild Flowers - card information

7. Teasel
(Dipsacus sylvestris Huds.)

7. Teasel

Wherever it grows this tall stiff plant with conspicuous prickly flower-head can hardly fail to be noticed. It has the general appearance of a thistle, although the two plants are not in any way related. The teasel flowers in late summer and seems never to be in full bloom. Its small purple florets open a few at a time, in a succession of bands round the otherwise green flower-head.
