Laguna de Santa Rosa
Cocklebur or Velcro Weed is a native plant that looks and sounds like an invasive weed. The burs can float - which helps it spread along waterways. In addition the plant is spread by animals with the hooked burs tangled in their hair. Cocklebur is used medicinally in China and South Asia, but the seeds and seedlings contain several toxins. Asteraceae family.
