Do you have thistles on your property? Larimer County Weed District is working to minimize existing weed problems in the county and eliminate new invaders before they take hold. This August, staff discovered Plumeless thistle (Carduus acanthoides) for the first time in Larimer County (on Storm Mountain near Drake) and are working to eliminate this new invader before it increases in size and density. Mostly found in mountain valleys, it is common and aggressive in Garfield, Pitkin, and Eagle counties. Learn how to identify and better manage thistles on your property with the Weed District's Thistles in Colorado Guidebook or request a free copy of the guidebook by calling 970-498-5768.
