Anyone have any suggestions? I have some ideas, but would like some feedback. It can grow very tall if allowed to. The roots are not deep and it's easy to pull up. The little bur pods will get very hard and sharp when they dry. Sorry for the poor detail on the burs, but I'm without a good camera right now.



Thanks for your help.

Except for the red stems, it looks like Common Cocklebur.
