This native thistle, listed as endangered by the federal government, grows in brackish and freshwater marshes along the coast in two southern California counties. Destruction of wetlands and urban development are major factors contributing to its decline. Because populations of these endemic plants are small, they are extremely vulnerable to extinction from man-made and natural causes.
