Description

Hard to photo when it has gone to seed. Very large and rangy. Would hate to collect a voucher on this one.
Wonder why I did not notice this plant anywhere until they were at this stage. Even found a six foot specimen in what is supposed to be my vegetable garden last week!

Very tall plant, perhaps 5-6 feet, with "thistle-look" leaves.
Seeds resemble that of dandelion.
