Hi Everyone,

I have a weed I need identification help with, in my friends garden. It is like a thistle but smooth, not prickly or downy

Thanks in advance

Hi @flowersnapper
The leaf reminds me of Acanthus mollis, but I would not call that plant a weed, and I wish I could grow it where I live! In what part of the world is your friend's garden located? Knowing that will give us a clue as to what plants are likely to be growing in it. Also, a photo of the whole plant showing its size and growth habit, and a photo of its flower, would be very helpful.
