Description:

Grows near the house, despite attempts to eradicate it. Second photo shows clearly why I find myself pulling bits of this plant out of my clothing for days after coming close to it.

annoying seeds

It took me about 3 hours to get these off one of my Border collies,or should I say Baldy Collie,when I was finished.

Identification

This is not a firm I.D. It could be easily instead be Greater Burdock, Arctium lappa. The difference is in the basal leaf stalks. Solid in Arctium lappa and hollow in A. minus.
