Name: Burdock

(Arctium minus) Also known as gobo root

Burdock is a member of the sunflower family, one of the largest plant families in the world. There are at least 10 species of genus Arctium throughout Europe; Arctium minus is very common throughout North America.

Description

Burdock is a common wild plant in fields, farmlands and along trails. Someone seeing it for the first time may think they are looking at rhubarb. Burdock is a biennial, meaning that it takes two years to produce seed. In the first year, it produces a rosette of rhubarb-shaped leaves. If you’ve never seen a rhubarb, the leaves are heart-shaped, or broadly ovate. The stem, however, is not red, as with rhubarb, but pale green.
