DESCRIPTION

Daisy Fleabane is a very common perennial plant that is seen along roadsides and waste areas. The flower has the appearance of a miniature Oxe Eye Daisy. . . .

Daisy Fleabane is considered a weed. It grows and blooms from spring on through the summer. It quickly comes back after mowing.

Common Daisy Fleabane is also called Philadelphia Fleabane (Erigeron philadelphicus), and has over 100 rays and clasping leaves. A close fleabane relative is Sweet Scabious (Erigeron annuus) which has less than 100 rays and stem leaves that are not clasping.
