    It's a Sowthistle - probably the prickly one Sonchus asper.

    I don't know what you mean by the English name, but the common name is Sowthistle.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
