Burdock is a common weed whose seeds are prickly burrs that cling tenaciously to clothing and socks. Native to Europe and Asia, the plant has become naturalized in all temperate parts of the world. Its name is a combination of French and English, bur coming from the French bourre, and dock coming from the Old English reference to large leaves. It contains chromium, iron, magnesium, silicon and thiamine. The peeled, cooked stalk tastes similar to asparagus. In herbology the dried, powdered root is used.
