A tall, striking native biennial, known for its large prickly seed heads which persist well into winter on roadside verges, waste ground and field edges. The lilac-pink conical flower heads are borne above serrated leaves in mid to late summer, attracting lots of bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. The seed heads are also a good source of food for birds. Teasels are an excellent architectural plant for the back of garden borders or in wildlife gardens where they will self-seed freely for a continual display. Dried teasel flowers also make an attractive and textural addition to cut flower arrangements. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 45cm (18").
