The Texas thistle is a useful wildflower for wildlife. Native bees use these for nectar and nesting material. Once the flowers begin to transition, goldfinches will use the fluff of the ripened seeds for their nests and will feed on the seeds. Texas thistles are also a larval host for Painted Lady butterflies.
