Centaurea calcitrapa

Centaurea calcitrapa Red star thistle

Cardo estrellado
It was originally native to Europe and grows from  30-1.30m and flowers from April to October. It is a magnet for several species of butterfly in the summer months as you can see here. The spikes or thorns are quite lethal.
