Indian teasel, Dipsacus sativus

We all know there's two kinds of teasels, common and cutleaf. Right? So I knew this was a cutleaf version with pink anthers. But eventually it nagged me enough that I did the right thing and looked it up. Behold the Indian teasel! It's still just an alien weed, good only when dried up for flower arrangements. So far it's invasion has been reported from CA, NY, OH, OR, PA, and VA. Butler Co OH, 7/13/15.
