Summary
Cirsium vulgare is a herbaceous biennial from the Asteraceae family. It can reach a height of 40 to 120 cm. Originally from Europe, Asia and North Africa, it has spread to virtually all temperate regions of the world. This grass tolerates a wide variety of soil types and levels of moisture. It can be abundant in areas where the soil has been disturbed, such as along roadsides and riverbanks and on overgrazed land. It is considered a noxious weed and can reach the dimensions of a \"plague\" in North America, Canada, Argentina, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
