Scratchy Plant

Garden - Scratchy Plant

This is another plant that came with the house. It grows quick in the summer and then dies with the frost making it look crap for most of the year.

Its stems are long and scratchy and scrape against the house at night like nails on a blackboard. When you cut it you get splinters and thorns and more often than not step on them, they go right through your shoe and into your foot.

This is massive and just keeps growing bigger and bigger which is unfortunate as I dont enjoy cutting it back, especially when its flowering so nicely.

At least its established. I do appreciate anything thats established as it does otherwise take ages to get to that size!!!
