This genus produces spiny thistle-like symmetrical flowers in purple, pink yellow or white colours and prickly leaves. Some species are also hairy and most are considered weeds. Other species are cultivated as garden plants, for their dramatic flowerheads and general attractiveness to a wide range of insects, they make good wildflower garden plants.
