Requesting to please ID this plant growing wild by the roadside in Ooty in November 2013.


Cirsium wallichii DC


To me this looks like Cirisium arvense


First two with broader leaves and yellowish lines represent I think Silybum marianum.

Last Carduus sp.

Saw this small plant in the Sunder Nursery, Delhi in Dec 2018. These plants may have been weeds, they were not potted and were growing near areas where water was collected.
Requested to please provide ID.


Leaf structure closely to Silybum marianum


Thank you .. for the ID.


could be. leaf venation certainly is reminiscent
