trailing fleabane, Erigeron flagellaris

The trailing stems of these plants help set it apart from our other 172 species of Erigeron. Here in the northeast fleabanes are easy puzzles. If you go south, or particularly west, they multiply into a bewildering array. What fun! Trailing fleabane can be seen in AZ, CA, CO, KS, MT, ND, NE, NM, NV, OK, OR, SD, TX, UT, WA, WY, AB, and BC. Jefferson Co CO, 6/16/13. Aster family, Asteraceae.
