Blessed milkthistle, Marian thistle, Mary thistle and Saint Mary's thistle are some of the names for the plant Silybum marianum. One thing they all have in common is that they describe an incredibly potent plant. The naturalist Pliny the Elder regularly prescribed it to his patients.
The name Saint Mary's thistle comes from an old legend that says that the white streaks on its leaves stem from the milk of the biblical Virgin Mary.
Milk thistle for medicinal purposes is mainly cultivated in Austria, Hungary, Germany, Argentinia, Venezuela and China.
