The genus Carduus, as established by Linnaeus, consists of what are called "True Thistles," with a hairy pappus or calyx, "Plume Thistles," with a feathery pappus or calyx. Bentham, in his "Hand-book of the British Flora," follows Linnaeus; but some botanists class the "True thistles" under the genus 'Carduus' and the "Plume thistles" under the genus Cnicus or Cirsium.
