Lactuca scariola
Lactuca serriola, also called prickly lettuce,milk thistle,compass plant, and scarole, is an annual or biennial plant, slightly foetid, that is commonly considered a weed of orchards, roadsides and field crops. The closest wild relative of cultivated lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.).. The leaves grow along a spiny stem and get progressively smaller as they reach its top. They emit latex when cut. Many flowers are produced and usually appear in the upper part of the plant.
It is known as the compass plant because in the sun the upper leaves twist round to hold their margins upright.
It is native to Europe, Asia, and north Africa, and has become naturalized elsewhere.

Hierba de ciclo anual, pero muy robusta, puede alcanzar más de un metro y medio de altura, se encuentra frecuentemente en los márgenes de caminos y es de floración casi estival. Se conoce por sus hojas rígidas con el margen profundamente lobulado, con pequeñas espinas, tanto en el margen como sobre el nervio central, pero sólo en el envés de la hoja. Las hojas se retuercen en la base y de forma característica se orientan de N-S. Los capítulos son pequeños, con las flores amarillas, formando una inflorescencia muy laxa en la parte superior del tallo. Generalmente encontraremos muy pocos capítulos abiertos. herbarivirtual.uib.es/cas-med/especie/3978.html Pius Font i Quer, en su "Botánica Pintoresca", hablando del fototropismo, explica que "la Lactuca scariola (= L. serriola) dispone las hojas de modo que los limbos foliares vienen a situarse en el plano del respectivo meridiano. De esta manera soslaya la acción de la luz demasiado intensa del sol de mediodía, y sólo recibe la luz difusa o los rayos solares de las primeras horas de la mañana o del atardecer."
