HISTORY OF THE TUMBLEWEED
The Prairie Tumbleweed, often called the Russian thistle, was introduced into the United States in the last century hitchhiking in imported grains from Russia. I can tell you, we at Prairie Farms are mighty thankful that the good Lord provided them for us. Back then some ranchers encouraged its growth thinking it to be a feed source for livestock in more arid regions of the country, like here in Southwest Kansas. That didn't catch on, but the practice of using them in home decorations, unique Christmas Trees, and natural landscaping caught on here as well as throughout the country. With the "Southwest Look" so popular in Santa Fe and Aspen and catching on throughout the country. Some of the more elite stores in Aspen and Rodeo Drive , carry decorative Tumbleweeds.
