There are many species of Thistle (Asteraceae) but the most common is what grows on lawns caused by not properly watering the lawn.

Typical adverse effects are competition with crops and interference with grazing in pastures, where dense growths of spiny vegetation suppress forage plants and repel grazing animals from eating either the thistle plants or neighboring forage. Some species, although not intensely poisonous, do affect the health of animals that swallow more than small amounts of the material.
