I grow these on purpose but they can be trouble!
They're apparently a burr from back when North America was full of large herbivores... I can't imagine having one tangled around my ankle... Oh wait! Yea I can!
But atleast I could take it off!
The seeds are quite tasty, even raw!
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
