Cirsium vulgare (Savi) Ten.

Cirsium vulgare plant

Family - Asteraceae

Stems - To 2m tall, branching, herbaceous, erect, spiny-winged, pubescent, striate.

Cirsium vulgare stem

Leaves - Alternate, pinnately lobed to pinnatifid, sessile or with winged petioles, glabrous to scabrous above, with spines from veins, pubescent below . Leaf bases decurrent on stem. Leaf lobes ending in strong spine. Larger leaves to +35cm long, reduced gradually towards apex of stem.

Cirsium vulgare leaf Upper surface of leaf.

Cirsium vulgare leaf Lower surface of leaf.

Inflorescence - Typically single or double flower heads terminating stems.

Involucre - To +3cm tall, 4cm wide, vase-shaped. Phyllaries imbricate, with a spine tip, arachnoid pubescent.

Cirsium vulgare involucre Involucre.

Ray flowers - Absent.

Disk flowers - Corolla pink to rose, tubular, to 3.5cm long. Style 1, exserted beyond corolla. Achenes to 6mm long, 2mm wide. Pappus of plumose bristles.

Cirsium vulgare flowers

Flowering - June - September.

Habitat - Pastures, prairies, disturbed sites, waste ground, roadsides, railroads.

Origin - Native to Europe.

Other info. - Many people, including myself, beat up on Carduus nutans as being a horrible exotic pest but Cirsium vulgare cannot be far behind. This is a very common plant. Its spiny leaves and stems are annoying at best. It is a pretty plant but doesn't make a good specimen for cultivation because of its prickles and weedy habit.
The fruits (seeds) are carried great distances by the wind with the aid of their plumose bristles.
