Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of thistles, belonging to the order Compositæ, tribe Cynaroideæ, and subtribe Carduineæ. It is characterised by flowers with a flat bristly receptacle, unequal simple pappus, smooth and nnited filaments, and a somewhat globular involucre with its numerous overlapping onter bracts spiny-fringed at the base, and tipped with a long, stiff, awl-shaped, spreading spine. The only species, S. Marianum, is a native of the Mediterranean region, extending from Spain to southern Russia, occurring as a weed in cultivated grounds northward, and also found in the Himalayas. It is a smooth, erect perennial, with alternate sinuate or pinnatifld spinytoothed leaves covered with conspicuous white veins and irregular spots, whence the name milk-thistle, as if drops of milk, ascribed in medieval legend to the Virgin Mary, had fallen on them. The large purple nodding flowerbeads are solitary and terminal, and were once used as artichoke for the table, the young leaves being also eaten as a salad, and the roots boiled.
