    Most thisle are incredibly fragrant and I have found them to be most appealing , apparently the bees and insects feel the same

    See this flower and I immediately smell the wonderful soft, spicy fragrance that some of the thistles have. Instant transport to a warm August meadow with bees droning away.

    //Fitz Clarke, on the Skidaway Audubon blog, recounts seeing soldier beetles fighting to mate with females on Cirsium discolor blooms, each of which had claimed her own thistle flower.//
    Looks like Crisium flowers are popular honeymoon spots for the soldier beetles!!
