Silybum marianum

Wildflowers Dicots Eudicots Asterids Asterales Asteraceae Silybum

Milk thistle. Non-native, an invader from Europe. Found along roadsides, and on the lower reaches of our trails.

First observed blooming in March.

Blooms before any other thistle, has a large bloom and white veins on its leaves.

Leaves start to appear in early November after the first rains.
