Cut-Leaved Teasel (Flowerheads)

Photo of cut-leaved teasel, blooming flowerhead, showing white flowers.

Cut-leaved teasel typically has white flowers. It was first recorded in our state in 1968, when it apparently had sprouted from seeds spread from a cemetery wreath to a nearby fencerow. But there have undoubtedly been numerous introductions since then. It is robust, aggressive, and is spreading rapidly along highways and other open habitats.
