Weed spotlight: Teasel

There are two different teasel plants. One is called common with purple flowers and one is called cutleaf with white flowers. Both of these species are biennial plants that can reach from 6 to 10 feet tall. The stems and leaves are very prickly. Teasel was originally introduced by settlers in the early 1700’s for the flower combs to card wool. Teasel thrives in moist sites and is common along the South Platte River.
