Cocklebur (Xanthium strumarium). Tall, bushy, annual weed with prickly seeds and sandpaper-like leaves. Grows in poor quality soil where excess phosphorous is available to plants.
Recommended control: This and many other tough undesirable plants are best controlled with physical removal and the use of vinegar and fatty acid products on regrowth.
