Erigeron strigosus-Daisy Fleabane-pictures

Daisy Fleabane - Erigeron strigosus is an upright annual or biennial plant in the Aster family (Asteraceae).
It has a worldwide distribution in temperate regions, growing on roadsides, meadows, disturbed areas but in flower gardens as well.

Daisy Fleabane has narrow, ovate leaves, sometimes with a few coarse teeth toward their outer tips.

The tinny, about 1cm across, flowers are produced in cluster, on side stems, from June to early autumn. Very narrow, white petals (ray florets) are surrounding the yellow center of the flower (disk florets}.

Being a self-seeding annual, Daisy Fleabane is often seen forming small colonies.

We have this daisy growing in a very hot awkward spot, nothing else seems to manage in that location while it thrives.
