these leaves are appearing at fairly regular intervals In my borders. I'm hoping it's a type of thistle but wandered if anyone could identify it before I assume it's a weed. 

The leaves are up to 9" long with conical spikes over the surface  

Many thanks, K


Teasels. Next year they send up the flowering spike. Bees love them. Goldfinches eat the seeds.


It'sa  teasel . It will get bid so dig it out if it's in a bad place. 

thanks, that's perfect.

I did plant some teasel seeds, along with other types, but have had terrible luck sowing seed so wasn't sure it was just a weed.
