hoary fleabane, Erigeron canus

Hoary fleabane is one of about 390 species in Erigeron. So here's a perverse answer to coming up with a way to make one look different; a lousy image. So many fleabanes, so little time? I really should have looked farther for a better subject. And again, how do you come up with names for all these species? Canus means gray, and was named by Asa Gray! Hoary fleabane grows in mostly rocky areas in AZ, CO, KS, NE, NM, OK, SD, UT, and WY. Ouray Co CO, 6/21/13. Aster family, Asteraceae.
