The normal variety were big and green with big yellow thorns growing out of them. They shot these spikes whenever they felt threatened, such as when a Human got too close. To get rid of them, it was recommended one used the Severing Charm to cut their stems. These plants were covered in second year Herbology classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However wild Spiky Prickly Plants had thin stems, and were somewhat green with brown thorns growing out. These could not shoot spikes, but it was inadvisable to touch them.
