I dont think it is Thistle as it has no prickles & grows like a bush

Is it burdoch?

it is a bulbaholic says a common burdoch. [Arctium minus] the root is quite deep and if you dont get it all out it will keep coming back.

Sbg, I thought both Arctium species in the uk were biennial?

the one i had was never allowed to set seed, so the plant didnt get the hormonal stimulus to die off. well that is my guess. Having said that there the tap root is huge and still hard to pull out.
