    FUN FACT: Many may wonder why this thistle has the title of "Blessed". In one of the legends of King Charlemagne, who was the king of Franks in the 1st century. It is said that his army was dying of the plague when campaigning for control of Western Europe. Fearing that he would lose the war an angel appeared in his dreams an told him to shoot an arrow into the air and whichever plant the arrow landed he should feed his troops. 


    Charlemagne did as the messenger said and his arrow landed in a big patch of thistle. Having given his army the thistle to eat, all were saved from the plague and continued to fight the war. This thistle became known as blessed from then on.
