Teasel (Dipsacus fullonum)

Teasel – Dipsacus fullonum

Teasel – Dipsacus fullonum is well known for its hooked spine seed heads which are mauve with flower in the Summer, attract flocks of Goldfinches in the Autumn and look rather good when tinted with gold spray at Christmas! This variety and also Fullers Teasel are still sometimes used in carding wool and cloth napping as they prove more efficient than any man made tool.
