Wild teasel (Dipsacus fullonum) is a strikingly architectural biennial wildflower that develops into an impressively statuesque tall plant within just two growing seasons, before completing its life cycle. In its first year teasel grows from seed for form a rosette of foliage, then produces flowering stems in the second year, which grow up to 2m tall. The distinctive conical prickly flower heads are covered in tiny purple blooms in midsummer, borne on the ends of tall, open, branching stems that are also clothed with prickles. Despite this prickliness, teasel is not related to thistle.
Price is for 15 seeds
