Fuller’s Teasel / Teasle

Teasels are easily identified with their prickly stem and leaves, and the inflorescence of purple, dark pink or lavender flowers that form a head on the end of the stem(s). They make fine dried flowers for arrangements.

      Thank you. They are sculptural – I should try and find a better photo of them though as these are a bit scruffy.
