Legend has it that as a Nordic army was sneaking up on a Scottish base a barefoot Nord soldier stepped on the sharp Scottish Thistle, letting out a scream and alerting the Scottish guard. In fact because of this one sharp thorn the entire army was ready for the sneaking attack and survived the invasion. This grand story may be legend or fact. But either way the Scottish Thistle is an important plant to the Scottish people and finds itself nestled in the soft spot of their hearts. Length: 5.58 in. / 141.77 mm. Height: 1.89 in. / 48.05 mm.
