I think I'm going to have to look for plantain seeds. I have never seen a plantain here or in the city. Lots of wild violets...

I have bull thistle seeds to offer (Cirsium vulgare). Keep control of them, or everyone will hate you except your rabbits. :)

Miss M, I ordered my seeds from Baker's Creek. If they do well, I would be happy to send you some.

I've never seen plantain flower, so I don't understand how it can have seeds :?:

I'll have to pay closer attention I guess, if I can find any of it. Used to be all over the place. I think it's still plentiful in my grandparent's old place.

well, just looked it up. I HAVE seen plantain flower, many times, just forgot what it looks like Image

I think we have that thistle all over the garden space. It gets huge and has nasty stings. Rabbits eat that??? :shock:

If what you have is Cirsium vulgare, then yep, they eat it... spears and all. It doesn't "sting", so I'm not sure you have the same thing. It truly looks evil, covered in 2" spikes, and they love the stuff.

You remember Br'er Rabbit? "Please don't throw me in that briar patch!" ...when, naturally, that was exactly where he wanted to go. :lol:

You know how many hours my mom forced us to spend chopping those bull thistles down before they could seed. :evil: My grandpa was very bad at getting the pastures mowed on time and his tractor was made up of duct tape and bailing twine so no one else wanted to deal with it. For all I hated them growing up they are one of the few colorful flowers in Iowa. Most are small white or pale yellow unless you go somewhere meadow and wild flowers have purposely been planted. Bull thistles stand high with bright purple flowers so my akita is named after them. Azami is the cirsium genus in Japanese. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cirsium

I'm pretty sure it's the same thing... they're all chopped down for winter, but they'll be back... horrid things :x They don't really sting I guess, but they stab the heck out of you if you try to pull them out. I'll double check when they come back up. Definitely sounds like bunny food if they are. They have deep roots.

Yeah, you definitely don't want to let them go to seed, unless you're going to net a single flower to harvest the seeds.

They're quite brutal! I understand one of their names is "spear thistle"... which fits them better than "bull thistle", in my opinion. There is no way to handle them without getting stabbed repeatedly, unless you wear leather gloves. Those actually tame them pretty well. For me, anyway.

This has got to be one of the few places on the net where a patch of dandelions inspires envy! (I'm envious too btw) :lol:
