Late Blooming Tall Thistle

Tall Thistle (Cirsium altissimum)

       Later than the normal bloom for the Tall Thistle this late arrival is somewhat stunted. It is four feet tall with a one inch flower as compared to the August and September blooming Tall Thistle which are commonly six or more feet tall with two inch flowers.
       Since the flowering plant population is approaching the end of their growing season, this solitary Tall Thistle stands out with it's beautiful pink/rose flower against the fading fall colors of the wooded area where it was found.
       Scroll down this blog for more information on the Tall Thistle or click on the link to the Wonderful World of Oklahoma Flowers.
