(Ri-ben-zu-duan)  Herbaceous perennial native to China.  With spreading branches topped by myriads of strange, lovely, creamy-flowered, spiny cones, the plant can be used as a central attraction for the herb garden.  Fervently visited by bees, it is very tough, drought-tolerant and not particular about soil.  Very different from common wayside teasel.  Traditional use (TCM): liver and kidney tonic, lower back pain, Lyme’s disease.  Plant prefers regular garden soil, even moisture, full sun.  Space 1 foot apart
