Abstract or Summary
  • Yellow starthistle, a native of the Mediterranean region, arrived in this country in 1869 as a contaminant in alfalfa seed. It is a strong invader of disturbed areas, rangelands, and roadsides and thrives in areas of summer drought. A yellow starthistle invasion will reduce biodiversity by choking out native plants. It also is poisonous to horses, causing a usually fatal nervous condition called chewing disease. Yellow starthistle favors deep, well-drained soil, full sunlight, and an annual rainfall between 10 and 60 inches.
