Abstract

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.
