yellow-starthistleYellow Starthistle can form solid stands, displacing other vegetation, reducing forage for livestock and wildlife and increasing erosion. It is poisonous to horses and the spines can injure other grazers. Yellow Starthistle can be identified by winged stems, a flower with bright yellow petals atop a distinctive spiny bud, and cottony pubescence covering the stem and leaves.
