This is a plant that grows at a ridiculous rate. I cut these horrible little thorny things out of my backyard at least twice a week and try as I may I can’t get rid of them. Weed killer doesn’t help either.
If my dogs find them before I do and accidentally get them stuck in there hair or even worse, step on them it hurts them something awful. Usually we wind up having to give them a spur of the moment hair cut. Poor babies!!
