Hairy/prickly 'weed' with thorns. Looks like a dandelion leaf
Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum, but have a question about this weed in my front lawn that was removed. At first glance, it looked like a dandelion, but upon closer inspection, it was not. I've tried googling for it with no luck. Maybe your plethora of planty knowledge can help me out.
- Hairy / prickly leaves with thorns, notably on the tip of the leaf.
- Thorns were generally about 1cm, very thin and white.
- Grows a lot like a dandelion (in that same style of a bunch of leaves from one root area)
- Color is green/dark green
- IMO kind of ugly looking
It was growing on this kind of dirt mound around a tree (I dont know landscaping terminology). Apparently it likes the dirt mound since I found a spawn not too far from it; but the rest of the yard is normal grass.
Enclosed is a link to the pic:
I took it from my cellphone before getting it removed so sorry bout the quality. I assure you there are thorns and it definitely hurts. :U
