Thistle Plant

    Santa Clarita Outdoor Report: Grasping Webs

    It sounds like a scene in a horror movie.  Imagine you are walking along a trail.  As you come around the bend, you see a Cobwebby Thistle (Cirsium occidentale) standing at least 6 feet tall.  But you’re not worried - the thistle is at least two feet in from the trail.  You approach...the music swells ominously...suddenly...the plant lurches towards you and gouges its spiny thistles deep into your shirt, a hold that will...not...let...go.  Shriek!
