    Ohhhhhh, I see now. Bullfroghollow suggested this, but I didn’t catch that the nettle is the burr. Got it. Yes, definitely Devil’s Beggar-tick. Thanks all! I never would have figured this one out.

    I grew out one of the Bidens a few year ago when I began seeing several of them one spring. My curiosity was further piqued by this post to the Georgia Gardener http://www.walterreeves.com/name-that-plant/exhausted-all-possibilities/ Yours is what I think is the DevilÕs Beggar-Ticks – Bidens frondosus http://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/devils-beggarticks One of the pretty Bidens is Bidens bipinnata L. – Spanish needles.

    I don’t *think* it’s a nettle, as I yanked it without gloves and had no stinging sensations.

    Looks like something in my garden, and I call it Spanish nettle. You will know soon because there will be lots of beggar tick seeds clinging to your clothes every time you walk by.
