Fuzzy fens

Fens are of course open places where the wind can blow free.  That means there are a lot of plants that take advantage.  Achoo!  Through the growing season there's lots of pollen.  Later, lots of fuzzy seeds.  These are bushy aster.  With the showy rays gone, it's easy to see how closely they are related to goldenrods.  A little bigger, but the same basic plan.
