I wish my wife would let me plant them in the yard, but she's been intimidated by all the hullabaloo over musk thistles. These native thistles are great for attracting anything that starts with a B: bees, butterflies, birds, even bears. And darn pretty, too. You can tell the tall thistles because the underside of the leaves are very white.
