Its official Russian name literally means "the subject of the frightening Devil", which reflects its special medico-magical function - to drive away evil spirits.

I think you have long understood that we are talking about a thistle. Biennial plant 60-180 cm high with an erect stem, prickly-winged to the very baskets. The leaves are alternately arranged along the stem, rigid, the lower ones are dying off early, the rest are oblong to oblong-ovate in outline, pinnately incised, along the edge with hard yellow spines. Blossoms in June-September; bears fruit in July-October. It grows along forest edges, in ravines, in bushes, along the banks of rivers and streams, in meadows and fields, near roads and dwellings.
The plant is realized in sizes M and L, which will allow it to be used in works of scales 1/48 - 1/24. Relatively easy to assemble: the plant must be removed from the supports, folded in half along the fold line and soldered or glued. Only assembling the buds can cause difficulties. But this task can be facilitated by the "dots" tool.
