Utah fleabane, Erigeron utahensis
Utah fleabane was right next to the goldenasters. In the western mountains, it seems like there's a fleabane right next to almost everything. They are all pretty things. Too bad we haven't come up with a better name. False asters? Asterettes? By any name, they are an endless wonder, and a puzzle for plant identifiers. Simular plants sometimes turn out to be asters, or even goldenrods. Fun! Utah grows in AZ, CA, CO, NM, and UT. Gunnison Co CO, 6/20/13.
