Fullers Teasel (Dipsacus Sativus) 80 seeds (#1872)

Fuller's Teasel is a biennial herb with a basal rosette of prickly, lanceolate leaves and tall flower spikes that ends in a single large flower - made up of a mass of tiny pink flowers.
The flower heads tend to bloom in bands of flowers up the stiff flower head from bottom to top.
Prefers full sun, is draught tolerant and will grow in any soil but do not like wet poorly drained soils.
Good butterfly plant.
The fresh root of the biennial plant is harvested at the end of the first year - during the second year the plant grows above the ground, while the root becomes increasingly fibrous and loses its medicinal properties.
