It is called Canada Thistle in ND - sorry neighbors to the north!
As much as I hate it in my potato field, I love elsewhere.
Nice big patches too - perfect pastures.

The plant is beneficial for pollinators that rely on nectar. It also was a top producer of nectar sugar in a 2016 study in Britain, with a second-place ranking due to a production per floral unit of (2609 +/- 239 μg).[8]
