I don't know what this is
Hello, everybody, I know that some of you visit other forums so if you've seen my question and photos elsewhere please just skip this. I have tried the Name That Plant, Weeds and Perennials forums for an ID.
Information that I have gathered:
It does not have a tap root. It does not sting. It does not smell like mint. The leaves are shiny. The spines or hairs are soft. It's growing on the edge of the woods in zone 6, NY.
I hope someone here will know what it is. Thank you.
