Description:

A very hairy thistle. Possibly a first year rosette. About 20cm across. Leaves are light green with a pronounced central rib (flat, perhaps slightly concave) narrowing towards prickled tips. Some small shoots extending upwards from the central ribs of some leaves. Two shots of the underside of leaves show a more vivid green on the central ribs.
