Noxious weeds can damage water quality and wildlife habitat and increase erosion. Land managers are trying to eradicate the weeds by hand and with chemicals.

Approved herbicide treatments are recommended. Once in July (just before the plant goes to bloom) and again after the first frost (when the plant is dying back). The July treatment will stress the plant because it uses its root reserves to grow more foliage. The fall treatment will allow herbicide to be taken into the root system since the plant is bringing sugars down into the roots to get ready for winter. This will be a multi-year process but with persistence you will gain the upper hand on this tough plant.

Maintaining healthy native plant communities is the best way to prevent the establishment of any weed. Canada Thistle can quickly invade disturbed areas, making revegetation critical to controlling this plant as well as other noxious weed species.  



Proper Identification of Thistles

Canada Thistle has a smooth stem while Musk and Plumeless Thistles have spiny stems. Canada Thistle flowers form in small clusters while Musk and Plumeless Thistles are larger and typically form one flower per long stem.

There are 13 species of Thistle native to Colorado. They don't form dense colonies like the alien species listed above. Many have white flowers and can be found at higher elevations.
