Abstract

Reference has been made in other articles of this series to the confusion that may arise from several different vernacular names being applied to one plant. The weed frequently called Star Thistle in Western Australia is known as Saffron Thistle in most other places where it grows, and the name Star Thistle is applied to a different plant. Although difficult to alter well established usage it is desirable that Carthamus lanatus be called Saffron Thistle. This name has already been accepted in many districts and will be used in this article.
