Musk Thistle

Growing 6+ feet tall, these thistles are amazing blasts of color all over the park these days. The bees bury themselves in the stiff petals for hours at a time.  Note: these are not the Canada thistle that is considered an invasive species! Don’t chop these down or poison them. (We’ve seen people doing both — even our landscaping company didn’t know the difference.)
