Thistle (Cirsium discolor)
These pink wildflowers are members of the Aster family. They have attractive pink or purple flower heads that are composed of several narrow tube-shaped flowers. They grow upright with only one flower head per stem.
They are relatively easy to grow and are great for supporting local wildlife; butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and Goldfinches are just a few that benefit from this beautiful plant. This is the perfect wildflower to include in naturalized areas and prairie gardens.
