Spines, Prickles and Points

Roots and Heads

[Photo ©2010, Chicago, Illinois, USA]

The photo may be a bit off, though I like it, but everything else is point on! Teasels are probably ignored, or overlooked, because they appear mostly in out of the way spots like roadsides or empty lots. As I do a little research on these plants I find that their roots can be used as a herb or the heads can be used for wool fleecing. Talk about a well rounded plant!
