Two types of burdock, Greater burdock (Arctium minus) and Lesser burdock (Arctium lappa) may be found on waste ground, verges and hedgerows. The picture shows Greater Burdock. It is a large plant with big leaves. The seed heads can be a nuisance as they stick to clothes and animals. It is not palatable to rabbits. A plant to be avoided.
