Monster plant

This is the second year I've had this monster in my garden. Don't know if it is a dangerous plant.The flower is from last year.

It's quite harmless

It's a great plant for attracting wildlife. The flowers (between the prickles) are a good nectar source and later in the year birds will eat the seeds. People used to use the pickly heads for combs and combing wool. Not any more though.
