Burdock

Burdock is a natural born hitchhiker: nature's velcro. I remember as a child how they could be balled up into a light throwing ball; harmless, unless, of course, it got caught up on your sister's hair. The flowerhead of the burdock looks like the thistle, but it has none of the prickles and spines of the thistle plant; except of course for the ball under the tiny lavender floret that the burdock wears as a crown.
