AUTHOR'S COMMENTS: Most often you will see this thistle in purple, but occassionally you will see them in white. Native to
Texas, they can stand up to 5' tall and sport blooms up to 3" across. Many wildlife and insect species feed on this plant,
but the sight I like best is to see a field covered by Butterflies or Gold Finch feasting on this of God's provsions. This
flower also has a very nice aroma and blooms all the way through September here in West Texas. In the sandy, rocky soil of
a drier climate and harsh growing conditions... you have to admire it's perseverance in blooming on alone and providing for
God's creatures when most others have wilted away.
