Not Your Mother’s Weed

Musk Thistle

According to http://www.nps.gov, “It spreads rapidly in areas subjected to frequent natural disturbance events such as landslides and flooding but does not grow well in excessively wet, dry or shady conditions.”

Which made me ask, “What about alone, on the side of the parking lot across the highway from a Burger King?”

  1. Wow, this is really beautiful. The thistle we had at our old place was nothing like this. What I can’t tell by your lovely photo is its size. How tall is it — say, in relation to you?
