Artist's Description

This is Cirsium rivulare, atropurpureum. Cirsium is a genus of perennial and biennial flowering plants in the Asteraceae, one of several genera known commonly as thistles. They are more precisely known as plume thistles. These differ from other thistle genera (Carduus, Silybum and Onopordum) in having feathered hairs to their achenes. The other genera have a pappus of simple unbranched hairs. The word ‘Cirsium’ derives from the Greek word kirsos meaning ‘swollen vein’. Thistles were used as a remedy against swollen veins. The flower blooms April to August.
