This is one of the commonest, and, arguably, one of the best-looking thistles. A good nectar plant, this thistle is either biennial or perennial. As with most thistles, the seeds are eaten by small birds, especially goldfinches. The flowers are attractive to butterflies and moths, including the small copper and the large skipper.
