Note:   I am not an expert in the identification of plants and you should 
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES rely upon any of these images to identify 
edible, toxic or medicinal plants. If I have identified a plant
inaccurately,  please let me know so that the descriptions may be corrected.  

 

Arctium minus is commonly known as "Lesser Burdock, Burweed, Louse-Bur, Common Burdock, Button-Bur, Cuckoo-Button" or "Wild Rhubarb".

This is a biennial plant is widespread throughout most of North Amercia, but is originally native to Europe.  It is a type of thistle and is part of the Asteraceae Family.  It is considered invasive and is recommended to be eradicated.  

This is a "fun" weed that I recall playing with as a child.  We would collect the sticky bracts to see how long a "rope" we could form.  These hooked fruits are said to be the inspiration for the creation of Velcro.

Plants grow from a very deep taproot to a height of 1 to 5 feet and may form multiple branches.  Leaves are long and oval shaped.  The plant blooms the second year from July to September and produces prickly purple flowers that somewhat resemble those of a thistle.  

The fruit of the plant is a head of light brown seeds with short bristly hairs which hitch a ride with clothing or fur on anything passing in order to spread its seed.  I've spent many hours pulling dried bracts from my  dog's hair.
