Small fall daisy like wildflower


Eastern Daisy Fleabane is a widespread species, found in Michigan and throughout most of the continental United States and Canada.

Daisy Fleabane Erigeron anuus is generally 2 to 3 feet tall, branching with many white-petaled, yellow-centered blossoms. It blooms from mid- to late spring on through most of the summer months.

It derives its name from the superstition that dried clusters of these plants could be used to rid a dwelling of fleas.
